Begich Statement On Republican Proposal To Dismantle Medicare

Washington, D.C.Senator Mark Begich released the following statement today regarding the Republican proposal to dismantle Medicare:

“In order to protect our long-term economic growth, we must get serious about cutting federal spending and ensuring the government lives within its means. However, a plan that puts our seniors’ safety and health at risk is not a plan about long-term security, but about political ploys and instigating fear. If Republicans would join me and my colleagues at the table, I am confident that we could get a real budget plan that not only reduces our deficit, but also ensures that the economy is growing, businesses are thriving and our seniors are protected.”
