Fact check: Biden voted to tax Social Security, wants to reform retirement benefits

  Fact check: Biden voted to tax Social Security, wants to reform retirement benefits As a senator, Joe Biden voted to tax Social Security benefits. As a presidential hopeful, he does not propose taxing property or retirement accounts.The former senator from Delaware was also the deciding vote in raising the Social Security tax rate to up to 85% in 1993, according to the meme.

In a podcast released Monday, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said the thought of a second term with President Donald Trump makes her "literally sick to my stomach."

"I can't entertain the idea of him winning, so let's just preface it by that," Clinton told Kara Swisher, as a guest on Swisher's New York Times Opinion podcast.

"It makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we'd have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions, and damaging of our norms and our values, and lessening of our leadership... The list goes on," she said.

In a 42-minute conversation, the two also discussed the 2016 presidential election, shifts seen among voters over the past four years and the persisting challenges of being a woman in politics.

Clinton's dislike of the President isn't one-sided. Trump continues to criticize Clinton and referred to her as "Crooked," in an Oct. 17 tweet.

"Joe Biden is a corrupt politician — and the Biden family is a criminal enterprise," he wrote. "This makes Crooked Hillary Clinton look like amateur hour!"

This election year, Clinton has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). She's helped raise millions for the campaign and has vocalized her support on social media.

Clinton has urged her followers to vote early, and cast their ballots for Biden-Harris — most recently, in a Monday post that also marked her birthday.

"It's my birthday. Here's my one wish: that you reach out to one person in your life who may not vote this year and encourage them to turn out for Biden-Harris," Clinton wrote on Instagram. "All of us have more power than we know."

In April, Biden referred to Clinton as "a woman who should be President of the United States right now" and said he wished he was campaigning for her re-election instead.
