DCCC: “Will Representative Jeff Landry Follow Republican Leadership In Backing Controversial Budget That Hurts Seniors?”
On Meet the Press yesterday, House Republican Leader Eric Cantor called for Republicans to “embrace” the controversial budget ‘road map’, proposed by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, that would privatize Social Security and dismantle Medicare. Democrats demanded Representative Jeff Landry to come forward and oppose his party’s devastating budget proposal in advance of its author, Representative Paul Ryan, delivering the Republican response to the State of the Union.
“House Republican Leader Eric Cantor made clear that House Republicans are now full speed ahead on a devastating plan that would privatize Social Security and eliminate Medicare. It’s time to see if Representative Jeff Landry agrees or if he is ready to put on the breaks before seniors get left out in the cold,” said Jesse Ferguson of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “It’s past time for Representative Jeff Landry to stand behind or against his leadership’s plan to gamble Social Security in the stock market and eliminate Medicare?”
