Tell the PA Senate GOP Challengers Not to End Medicare

Last year, Congressional Republicans in Pennsylvania joined with other members of the new Tea Party majority to pass a harmful budget that would end Medicare as we know it.

With the U.S. House GOP preparing to release a new budget it's up to us to make sure they don't try to jam through a similar budgettime around.

All indications from the Republican Senate primary field show that they will embrace the Tea Party push to dismantle Medicare. At a recent forum, all candidates in the race agreed to allow people to opt out of Medicare - like in the Ryan plan. As these candidates run to the extreme right to win the nomination, they need to hear from the rest of the state that we need to protect seniors and Medicare.

The Ryan budget would increase the debt to give massive tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires, end Medicare as we know it, and puts our country on an unsustainable path. Republicans in Pennsylvania should stand up to Washington Republicans and side with seniors over special interests. Now is the time to hear where David Christian, Sam Rohrer, Marc Scaringi, Tom Smith, and Steve Welch stand on the Ryan budget.
