CONCORD, N.H. – As Congressional candidate Annie Kuster meets with seniors to discuss her commitment to protecting and strengthening Medicare during her district-wide “Standing Up For Seniors” tour, Congressman Bass will be behind closed doors at a private fundraiser with Speaker of the House John Boehner.
Speaker Boehner, who presides over a historically dysfunctional Congress that has spent two years failing middle class families, has been an outspoken supporter of the Ryan budget that would end Medicare as we know it, and that Congressman Bass has consistently supported.
“It’s fitting that Congressman Bass and Speaker Boehner are sharing a stage in New Hampshire since they share an agenda in Washington,” said Annie Kuster. “Bass and Boehner both support a reckless plan that would end Medicare as we know it, hurting New Hampshire seniors, while giving millionaires new tax breaks they don’t need and America simply can’t afford.”
“After closed-door fundraisers with Paul Ryan and Speaker Boehner, it’s obvious that Republican leadership views Congressman Bass as a reliable vote and key ally in their effort to turn Medicare into a voucher program that would cost New Hampshire seniors an additional $6,400 out of pocket each year.”
This morning, Kuster launched a “Standing Up For Seniors” tour that will take her across the Second District to meet with Granite State seniors and discuss her commitment to protecting and strengthening Medicare and Social Security. She kicks off the tour today with events in Salem and Nashua.
