Biden fires Trump-era Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul

President Biden dismissed Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul on Friday after he refused a request to resign, the Washington Post first reported.

Why it matters: Saul, who was nominated to the position by former President Trump in 2018, had a chaotic six-month term in the Biden administration, during which advocates for the elderly and the disabled urged the White House to terminate him over his anti-union stances and policies designed to restrict benefits.
