Democrat Carmona supports Obamacare, which cuts $716 billion from Medicare
PHOENIX – Democratic Senate candidate Richard Carmona is again proving why he was handpicked and recruited by President Barack Obama to run for the Senate in Arizona. Carmona has begun to attack his opponent Jeff Flake using a favorite page out of the Democrats’ election playbook: Mediscare.
Problem is, this old standby strategy has been backfiring on Democrats as voters have gotten wise to the tired technique and are looking more closely at the policies the Democrats are promoting.
Speaking to Democrats earlier this year, Richard Carmona acknowledged that he supported Obamacare and even called the President ‘brave” for pushing it. (http://youtu.be/gEAF5DxaHyY)
However, President Obama and congressional Democrats cut $716 billion from Medicare over the next decade to pay for Obamacare, the president’s massive health care entitlement. Democrats’ deep cuts to Medicare will ultimately hurt seniors and impact their access to quality care.
“Obamacare means devastating consequences for Medicare, because it cuts $716 billion from the program,” said Andrew Wilder, communications director for the Flake campaign. “It’s irreconcilable for anyone to support Obamacare while also claiming to support protecting Medicare for seniors. Yet that’s Richard Carmona.”
Arizona seniors have a choice, however. Jeff Flake has fought both political parties in order to reform Washington. Flake voted against Obamacare and supports its repeal. Jeff Flake will provide a check and balance on President Obama and congressional Democrats, and will fight for common-sense reforms that will protect benefits of current recipients and preserve the program for future generations.
