Trump holdovers at the Social Security Administration continue to dismantle and undermine our Social Security system out of an ideological drive.
Tell President Biden:
Fire Donald Trump’s appointees to the Social Security Administration who are attacking Social Security from within the government.
Did you know nearly three months after President Biden has been inaugurated, there continue to be Trump holdovers running the Social Security Administration? These Trump officials were hired to undermine Social Security―and replacing them is long overdue.
In last November’s historic election, the American people elected Joe Biden to end the Trump era, once and for all―and that includes ending attacks on our earned benefits that took generations to build. It is unconscionable that attacks are coming from inside the Social Security Administration by Trump holdovers.
The good news: Our campaign to protect Social Security is gaining momentum.
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) has assumed the chairmanship of the Senate Social Security subcommittee, and immediately echoed the call to fire SSA Commissioner Andrew Saul and his top deputy, David Black:
“Saul and Black are incapable of carrying out Democrats’ vision of protecting and expanding Social Security. As agents of the Trump Social Security agenda, they cut the benefits that hardworking Americans have earned, attacked the Social Security Administration’s employees, denied beneficiaries due process, and needlessly increased disability reviews during the COVID-19 pandemic. No one has been safe from their path of destruction.”1
A whistleblower also recently revealed Saul and Black were putting illegitimate pressure on SSA Judges to wrongfully deny people with disabilities their earned Social Security benefits.
Remember, Donald Trump appointed his SSA Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner with the explicit intention of undermining Social Security from within.
Trump is out of office―but Saul and Black remain. President Biden must remove them immediately. If he doesn’t fire them, they could continue to serve until 2025!
Sign this petition to demand President Biden fire Andrew Saul and David Black from the Social Security Administration immediately. Remind President Biden that we can’t allow Trump-era holdovers to continue to undermine our earned benefits.
