President Joe Biden blasted Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson on Johnson’s home turf, accusing him and other Republicans of trying to strip Americans of their Social Security and other government benefits. 

“These MAGA Republicans in Congress are coming for your Social Security,” Biden said Monday at a rally in Milwaukee, referencing former President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.
