This week Ron Barber continued to try to deceive voters about his views on Medicare. Fact is, Barber refuses to support the repeal of ObamaCare, which cuts $500 billion from Medicare and empowers a panel of government bureaucrats to make decisions about seniors’ health care. Since the government healthcare takeover is paid for in part by nearly $200 billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage programs, seniors currently on these plans could find their benefits at risk.
In Arizona, more than 342,000 seniors are enrolled in Medicare Advantage, a program that ObamaCare guts to fund the government takeover of healthcare supported by Barber.
Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what former Arizona Daily Star political reporter and now spokesperson for the NRCC says about Ron Barber:
“Ron Barber’s policies put seniors at risk. He refuses to support the repeal of ObamaCare, which is the only way to stop Obama and Pelosi’s cuts to Medicare. No wonder Pelosi and Raul ‘Boycott’ Grijalva are backing Barber’s campaign.”
