Democrats pounce on Ryan Medicare plan with Florida robocalls



Democrats are using robocalls to link Republican Congressional candidates to the Ryan plan to turn Medicare into a voucher-like program.

The calls target FL-02  Congressman Steve Southerland; FL-10  Congressman Dan Webster; FL-13  Congressman Bill Young; FL-16  Congressman Vern Buchanan; FL-18  Congressman Allen West; FL-22  Adam Hasner.

“From now until Election Day, Democrats will be on offense and in overdrive, seizing this golden opportunity to define the choice in this election: Republicans putting Millionaires over Medicare and the middle class,” said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel. “The battle lines are drawn and we will make sure that voters know that Republicans want to hand millionaires a $265,000 tax break, while sticking seniors with $6,400 more in health care costs. It’s crystal clear that the Ryan budget will be a defining issue in congressional races across the country and House Republicans can’t escape the political devastation it will cause them.”
