Kirkpatrick Campaign Responds To False, Negative Ad From Primary Opponent
Ann Kirkpatrick has been a strong voice in Congress to protect Medicare and Social Security.
That’s why the Republicans have spent millions of dollars trying to defeat her.
That’s why she has been endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Medicare and Social Security.
“National Committee members know what sets Ann apart from her opponents in this election, she already has a record of supporting seniors and their families,” said Max Richtman, President of The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. “Ann worked to ensure Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Older Americans Act services to seniors were fully funded. The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare knows it can count on Ann.”
What Matt Heinz is saying is not accurate.
In 2010, the Republicans pretended that voting for Obamacare was a “cut” to Medicare. They were lying. Today, Matt Heinz is pretending that Ann’s vote for the ABLE Act was a “cut” to Medicare. He is lying. It wasn’t. The ABLE Act was a bill that helped people with disabilities save money to pay for medical and other expenses. It passed the U.S. House 404 votes to 17 votes. This was not a controversial piece of legislation. Harkin. President Obama signed it into law.
