To the Journal editor:
Is everyone tired of all the Political ads? The half truths and outright lies is disgusting. Gary McDowell is telling me that Republicans don't care about the working man.
Well Mr. McDowell, I'll have you know, I'm a working man, and I resent the implication that I don't care. At 68, I'm still working so I can pay for my Medicare, I find it offensive that Obama and the Democrats want to cut my benefits to pay for Obamacare, i.e. the Affordable Health Care Act. Not so affordable.
McDowell is claiming U.S. Rep. Dan Benishek, R-Crystal Falls, wants to cut Medicare. If we have to pay more, it'll be because of Obama Care and not Dr. Dan. Dr. Benishek believes in protecting Medicare for today's seniors and future seniors.
Gary McDowell wants to save the country by cutting waste, not reducing spending. Dr. Benishek supports the plan that does not end Medicare, but makes Medicare permanently solvent by reducing waste, fraud, abuse and over payment.
The house budget plan Dr. Benishek voted for makes no changes for anyone over the age of 55 and will offer seniors the same comprehensive, government approved and regulated plans that members of Congress and federal employees currently enjoy.
Get yourself educated so you can make an informed decision and make sure you vote on Nov. 6.
