New Survey Shows Baldwin At Odds With 90 Percent of Seniors Who Rely on Medicare Part D
Baldwin Has Voted Against, Criticized and Wants to Dismantle the Popular Prescription Drug Program
Madison, WI - A newly released survey from KRC Research and Medicare Today proves that Madison liberal Tammy Baldwin is wrong on Medicare Part D. In an article about the survey, USA Today even stated, "Here's one program candidates aren't likely to mess with: The Medicare prescription drug plan." Unfortunately for Baldwin, she has made the popular prescription drug program that 90 percent of seniors support the centerpiece of her salacious campaign.
Not only has Baldwin voted against and openly attacked Medicare Part D, but she wants to dismantle it and put the government in charge of prescription drug negotiations. Her opposition for the popular program that enrolls 31.5 million people and that has come in 43 percent under its projected budget flies in the face of the seniors who rely on it to live.
"Madison liberal Tammy Baldwin is at odds with 90 percent of the 31.5 million seniors who rely on Medicare Part D," said spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. "Unfortunately for the millions of seniors who need the program to live, Tammy Baldwin wants to dismantle it and put the government in charge of negotiating their prescription drug prices. Fortunately for Wisconsin seniors, Tommy Thompson stood up for them as HHS secretary and created a program that not only came in 43 percent under its projected budget, but one that 90 percent of seniors support and have come to rely on. Not only has Baldwin voted to gut seniors' Medicare by $716 billion and put a board of 15 unelected bureaucrats in charge of rationing their care, but now she wants to dismantle their Medicare Part D. Madison liberal Tammy Baldwin is just too extreme for Wisconsin's seniors."
