NEW: Doherty Pledges to Reject Efforts to Cut Benefits for Seniors
Monday, September 24, 2012
Republican Congressional candidate Brendan Doherty today pledged to reject any effort to cut “Social Security and Medicare benefits” for senior citizens and accused incumbent Congressman David Cicilline of spreading misinformation about his stance on the issue.
Doherty’s comments came during a morning press conference in East Providence. He maintains that he is opposed to any plan to replace Medicare with a voucher system and called for a bipartisan approach to addressing the issue.
The Republican ripped Cicilline for using “scare tactics” to deceive voters about his positons.
