Well, he's done it again.
Rep. Chip Cravaack released a new ad today, and once again he's lying to his constituents -repeating false claims on Medicare which have been referred to as "misleading", "ridiculous" and "nonsensical" by many independent news outlets, lying about his position on Medicare and lying about his DFL endorsed challenger former Congressman Rick Nolan
The Nolan campaign Tuesday fired back, with campaign manager Mike Misterek calling Cravaack out for once again lying to his constituents:
In his latest campaign ad, Congressman Chip Cravaack is looking voters in the eye and lying to them not only about Rick Nolan’s position on Medicare, but about his own record on Medicare.Chip Cravaack has a lot to learn about northern Minnesota values. Lying to constituents is bad enough, but using your own father to do so is beneath contempt, the lowest of the low. And someone this desperate to hide the truth must truly be terrified at the prospect of facing an honest person in a public forum.
The truth is, Rick Nolan will strongly fight to always honor the promise made to Americans who have spent their lives paying into the system by strengthening Medicare and making sure it’s there for future generations.
The $700 billion in Medicare ‘cuts’ Cravaack mentions in this latest ad do not cut benefits and will not reduce care for seniors at all. In fact, Cravaack voted for the same amount of cuts twice as part of the Ryan budget, and went a step further by voting to turn Medicare into a voucher system for the private insurance companies.
When it comes to protecting Medicare there is a clear choice in this election – between Rick Nolan who wants to preserve and protect it for future generations and Chip Cravaack who enthusiastically supports the Ryan plan, which ends Medicare as we know it and increases costs for seniors by $6,400 per year.
It’s time for Congressman Cravaack to stop the lies and be straightforward with his constituents about his plan to turn Medicare over to private insurance companies.
It sure didn't take long for Congressman Cravaack to become just another Washington politician who will do and say anything to get elected.
No wonder Cravaack's campaign is afraid former Congressman Rick Nolan will clean Chip's clock in a debate.
Please help DFL/Labor/Kos endorsed Rick Nolan fight back by sending a contribution in any amount. Thank you!
