Kirkpatrick admitted in this week’s debate that she supports raising taxes on hardworking Arizonans and dangerously altering seniors’ benefits formula.
The Tobin campaign launched a new robocall campaign Thursday morning designed to educate Arizona’s seniors on Ann Kirkpatrick’s admission that she supports painful tax increases and benefit alterations with Social Security. (Listen here.)
On Tuesday night in Marana, Ann Kirkpatrick said that she supported raising the cap on contributions, which would mean more taxes for Arizona’s families and businesses. (Arizona Daily Star, 10/15/14)
She also said she supported altering the formula used to pay out the hard-earned benefits for seniors.
“Ann Kirkpatrick finally admitted to the voters on Tuesday that she will have no problem voting for a plan that would raise taxes on Arizonans and take an axe to the current formula that pays seniors their hard-earned benefits,” campaign manager Bill Cortese said in a statement. “Andy Tobin believes in preserving the promise of Social Security and leaving seniors’ benefits alone, and he refuses to raise taxes even further on Arizona’s hard-working families and small businesses.”
See below for the transcript of the new robocall.
Hi. I’m calling with the Andy Tobin for Congress campaign to make sure you heard what our Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick said the other night at a debate about Social Security.
After all the wasteful spending Kirkpatrick and President Obama have done in Washington, now they want to pay for it all on the backs of our seniors.
Kirkpatrick said she supports raising Social Security taxes, which would hit hard working Arizonans and small businesses.
And she supports a risky plan that would change the Social Security benefit formula.
Andy Tobin opposes Kirkpatrick’s irresponsible Social Security plan and will take the lead in Congress to protect both Social Security and Medicare. Andy Tobin opposes raising the retirement age, cutting benefits and raising taxes on seniors.
The choice in this election is pretty clear. Kirkpatrick is just wrong for Arizona and for seniors.
