McConnell distances the GOP from Rick Scott as Biden intensifies his attacks on the GOP on Social Security and Medicare.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., distanced the Republican Party from Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla."Plan ,'s to Rescue America" in an interview Thursday, as President Biden continued to attack Republicans for allegedly wanting to sunset Medicare and Social Security. 

Biden and other Democrats have used that broad proposal to accuse Republicans of attempting to phase out Social Security and Medicare. 

 "The Republican plan — as I stated last fall — if we gain the majority, there are no plans to raise taxes on half of the American people or to sunset Medicare or Social Security," McConnell added. "So, it's clearly the Rick Scott plan, not the Republican plan, and that's also the Speaker of the House's view," he said.

The Biden White House has repeatedly accused Republicans of wanting to "cut Social Security and Medicare," which GOP lawmakers have categorically denied.

The president's comments were met with loud boos from the Republican side of the aisle in the House chamber, and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and others called the president a "liar."

Biden stated in 1995, "When I said we should freeze federal spending, I included Social Security. I was referring to Medicare and Medicaid. I was referring to veterans' benefits. I was referring to everything in the government."

 "Last night, President Biden said, 'Stand up and show [seniors] we will not cut Social Security. We are not going to cut Medicare.'
