Merkley: Republican Plan to Dismantle Medicare Breaks Covenant with Seniors

May 25, 2011

Washington, D.C.  – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley issued the following statement after the Senate rejected the Republican budget plan: 

“Instead of laying out a vision for the future that creates jobs for the unemployed or invests in education, clean energy, and infrastructure, the Republicans offered a budget that ends Medicare as we know it and gives bonus tax breaks for the best off. Medicare is a covenant with our seniors, and must be strengthened, not dismantled.”

Senator Merkley spoke on the senate floor today against the Republican budget.  His full comments can be viewed here.
