Arizona Dem Took Over $700 Billion from Medicare to Pay for ObamaCare
WASHINGTON --- In a recent poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans – 73 percent – said Medicare is ‘very important’ or ‘extremely important’ when they are choosing who to vote for. This isn’t welcomed news for Ron Barber, who voted to gut Medicare for current and future seniors to fund his big-government takeover of healthcare.
"Ron Barber has already proven his unwillingness to protect Medicare for current seniors, so Arizona seniors aren’t going to protect him,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."This poll is further proof that Barber's choice to cut over $700 billion from Medicare for current seniors was the breaking point for many Arizona families and seniors.”
Washington Democrats’ massive Medicare cuts have put them in an unpopular position:
"The nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation said on Thursday that 73 percent of respondents polled in the days around the announcement described Medicare as ‘very important’ or ‘extremely important’ to their votes.” (David Morgan,"U.S. voters see Medicare as a top election issue: poll,” Reuters, 8/16/2012)
