NEW: Dems Blast Doherty Over Support for Paul Ryan

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

 

The state Democratic Party is taking Republican congressional candidate Brendan Doherty to task for his support for House Budget chairman Paul Ryan’s plan for cutting Medicare benefits.

“Paul Ryan may not be a household name to everyone in Rhode Island, but if you’re a senior citizen who relies on Medicare, you should know who he is and what he stands for, because these are the types of Republicans Brendan will be standing with and voting with, if elected to Congress,” said Bill Fischer, spokesperson for the RI Democratic Party.

Doherty has long said he does not want to cut Medicare, but the Democrats question his credibility.

“Doherty continues to brand himself as a bipartisan candidate in this race and his attempts become less credible each day,” Fischer said. “But make no mistake, Mr. Doherty supports Congressman Ryan, he supports Speaker Boehner and he’ll be voting against the needs of Rhode Island’s senior citizens and middle class if elected to Congress. Furthermore, Mr. Doherty has gladly accepted $5,000 in campaign contributions from Mr. Ryan’s Prosperity PAC, further proof that Rhode Island’s seniors cannot trust Brendan Doherty to protect Medicare.”
