WASHINGTON – Forty-eight years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Medicare into law. How is Rep. Dave Loebsack celebrating this historic anniversary? By continually opposing plans that would balance the budget and preserve and protect Medicare for future generations.

“On the anniversary of Medicare, Dave Loebsack and Congressional Democrats should be ashamed of their votes to destroy this vital social program,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Dave Loebsack’s consistent opposition to a balanced budget is hurting seniors and bankrupting Medicare.”

Loebsack’s vote against the Republican balanced budget isn’t the only vote that hurt Medicare recipients. Loebsack has also opposed fully repealing ObamaCare, which gutted Medicare by $716 billion. Recent reports have shown that doctors are abandoning Medicare payments due to ObamaCare’s costs and regulations.
