Statement on Bill Cassidy’s Support For the Ryan Budget
New Orleans, Louisiana – Campaign for Louisiana Communications Director Andrew Zucker released the following statement today:
“Bill Cassidy has cast himself as the opponent of seniors in this election, and his agenda to raise the retirement age to 70, end Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher program and force seniors to pay thousands more, while awarding tax breaks to billionaires, would have disastrous consequences for seniors in Louisiana.
“Since entering Congress Bill Cassidy has supported every major piece of legislation that would slash retirement benefits for as many as 650,000 Louisiana seniors. Cassidy’s agenda takes care of millionaires and billionaires at the expense of seniors and the middle class, and Louisianians simply can’t trust Bill Cassidy to fight for them in the Senate.”
