Campaigns spar over Medicare reform
Bustos says Republican plan would force seniors to spend $6,400 more
STERLING – Republican running mate Paul Ryan is likely to be forced to defend his plan to cut Medicare spending by $716 billion when he debates Vice President Joe Biden tonight on national television.
On Wednesday, Democratic challenger Cheri Bustos tried to put first-term Congressman Bobby Schilling on the defensive over Ryan’s plans.
Bustos, in a conference call Wednesday morning with news media, said Ryan’s budget plan would “force seniors to pay an additional $6,400 out of their pockets for Medicare.”
