GOP’s top priority: Slash Medicare. WASHINGTON CONG. CAND. JASON RITTEREISER.


  • David --

    Over the holidays, I had the chance to sit down and read...responses to my priorities survey -- over and over, I saw that protecting Medicare and Social Security is a top concern in the 8th District.
     
    No surprise there: for decades, millions of seniors have worked hard and paid into Medicare and Social Security, trusting the government to keep up its end of the bargain when they retired. 
     
    But Speaker Paul Ryan has made it clear that his top priority in 2018 is to gut these programs -- breaking a sacred promise to the American people.
     

     In 2017, Paul Ryan and Donald Trump rammed through massive tax cuts for big corporations and the super-rich. This year, they’re going to stick seniors with the bill by slashing Medicare and Social Security.
     
    We can -- and must -- stop them. Here’s how: In November, we need to flip the 8th District and take back the House...we need to tell Republicans: NO cuts to Medicare and Social Security.
