A press release from Congressman Joe Walsh:
Rep. Walsh Votes to Save Medicare
Today Congressman Joe Walsh voted in favor of the Republican Budget, the only budget which saves Medicare, actually balances, and puts our country on a path to solvency.
Walsh stated: “Everyone, Republicans and Democrats alike, knows that Medicare will end in 8 to 10 years if we don’t fix it.
Only the House Republicans have put forth a budget to fix it and save it, not the Democrats and certainly not the President.
“Everyone knows that if we do not do something about our country’s debt right now, our kids and grandkids will be stuck with the bill. That is unconscionable. Only the Republicans approved a budget that actually balances. The Senate has failed to pass a budget in the past 3 years while the President put forth a budget that never, ever, ever, ever, ever balances.
“My opponent, Tammy Duckworth, proposes to do nothing when it comes to Medicare. By doing so she is allowing Medicare to die.
“My opponent, Tammy Duckworth, supports a budget that grows our debt and never, ever, ever, ever, ever balances. As a result she is allowing our kids and our grandkids to become indentured servants.
“I believe the American people are responsible enough to do what is right for future generations.
“Tammy Duckworth does not. The choice in this election is clear.”
