Job-Destroying Tax Hikes and Medicare Slashes Are Funding ObamaCare
WASHINGTON --- Arizona seniors had no idea that their access to Medicare would be threatened when they need it most. However, this is exactly what President Obama allowed to happen when he and Ron Barber passed their big-government takeover of healthcare – that it would be funded by slashing Medicare and raising taxes on job creators.
"Arizona seniors and working families are under attack from every direction thanks to Ron Barber Barber's failed agenda,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."If Barber isn’t going to look out for seniors’ Medicare or the economic stability of small businesses then he can be sure that they aren’t going to look out for him come November.”
Even President Obama admitted that one third of his disastrous big-government healthcare overhaul was paid for by cuts to seniors’ Medicare:
ABC’s JAKE TAPPER:"One of the concerns about health care and how you pay for it — one third of the funding comes from cuts to Medicare.”
BARACK OBAMA:"Right.” (“ABC News Exclusive Interview with President Barack Obama,” ABC News, 11/9/09) abcnews.go.com/Politics/transcript-abc-news-exclus...HY9Bk
