The Renee Ellmers Flip-Flop

In 2010 Renee Ellmers attacked Bob Etheridge for supposedly voting to cut Medicare. Now in 2011, Ellmers is not only voting to cut Medicare, but end the program as we know it.

Ellmers wholeheartedly supports the discredited Paul Ryan plan that lavishes even more tax cuts on the wealthy funded by slashing Medicare and turning it into a voucher system. According to the CBO, seniors will have to pay at least 6,000 dollars out of pocket, but some other reports have stated this could be closer to 20,000.

This week Renee Ellmers is hosting public town halls, but as of last night her Congressional office had yet to post any notification of them.


To be fair other variations of the search term were used returning the same result.

Perhaps because Ellmers staff doesn't want to expose her to constituents who now want to ask the tough questions about why she wants to privatize and defund Medicare. Something they didn't vote for.

Correction: Ending Medicare -- period

Fixed it for you.

A voucher program to purchase medical INSURANCE is not the same thing as receiving medical CARE.

 

Republicans who campaign on "protecting" and "fixing" things ...

... can be counted on to set out to destroy those same things if they are elected. From GOP-speak, "protect" (as in "protect Social Security") and "fix" (as in "fix Medicare" or "fix public education" translate to "do rageaholic anal rape to" in American English.
