White House HIDES Evidence — Has It Scrubbed!

White House Deletes Controversial Tweet

White House Deletes Controversial Tweet

(ConservativeInsider.org) – The way Americans take in information has changed over the years. While many still go to reliable sites or papers for their fill of news, many peruse social media sites, including Twitter, to get the most up-to-date info. The White House recently sent out a tweet attempting to educate users about a recent boost to Social Security checks, but readers quickly chimed in that the announcement was quite misleading.

On Tuesday, November 1, the White House noted how those who receive Social Security “are getting the biggest increase” in a decade because of President Joe Biden. However, Twitter, now under the leadership of Tesla CEO and billionaire Elon Musk, quickly posted some context next to the tweet to help people understand the claim.

Every year, the Social Security Administration (SSA) calculates a Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) that indicates how much it will increase payments to seniors. This October, the agency announced the COLA would be 8.7% for 2023. So, the SS increase the Biden administration was bragging about was actually brought about by the intense inflation hitting Americans, not by a boost to funding for the government program.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed to reporters that the media team deleted the controversial tweet, claiming it was “not complete.”

As many Twitter users pointed out, this major increase to the SS checks, while helpful for seniors struggling to make ends meet, is probably not something to brag about.
