Andrew Saul is no longer wanted in the White House or at Social Security. According to a statement from the White House (via CNN), Joe Biden has asked Saul to pack it up after years of fiddling with the average Americans’ benefits. A WH official reportedly told the network that Saul was given the boot as was at least one other.

“Since taking office, Commissioner Saul has undermined and politicized Social Security disability benefits, terminated the agency’s telework policy that was utilized by up to 25 percent of the agency’s workforce, not repaired SSA’s relationships with relevant Federal employee unions including in the context of COVID-19 workplace safety planning, reduced due process protections for benefits appeals hearings, and taken other actions that run contrary to the mission of the agency and the President’s policy agenda,” the White House official said.
