Lasry claimed Johnson “is supporting the Republican plan that phases out Social Security and Medicare.” 

But the plan is not backed by all Republicans (detractors include the Senate leader), does not directly call for the phase out of either program (it’s a generic statement on all laws being sunsetted for review) and Johnson has not endorsed any such phase-out (only the idea of Scott laying out a plan).
