Rick Nolan hit the Medicare issue on the head during the recent Eighth District Congressional debate in Duluth when he said to Rep. Chip Cravaack: “You have a plan for Medicare all right. You plan to end it.”
The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and fact checkers around the country agree with Nolan that the Paul Ryan budget Cravaack has repeatedly voted for will end Medicare “as we know it”. Cravaack and Ryan would replace the earned benefits we’ve worked for our entire lives with a voucher system that would raise health care costs for an average senior by $6,400 by forcing us into the private insurance market.
Nolan will fight to preserve and protect Medicare with trillions in savings derived from ending ‘wars of choice,’ fighting Medicare fraud and abuse and putting an end to Bush tax cuts for the rich. I like Nolan’s approach and I’m supporting him on Election Day.
Vote Rick Nolan for Congress. For us.
