#5. Vukmir Sold Out WI On Paul Ryan’s Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security Cuts

Paul Ryan’s career has been defined by his support for deep cuts and fundamental changes to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security — now Leah Vukmir is campaigning to carrying on Ryan’s push for cuts to earned benefits that millions of Wisconsinites depend on

MADISON — Five days out from Election Day, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is continuing to count down some of the worst examples fromRepublican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir‘s 16-year record working for corporate special interests at the expense of Wisconsin.

#5. Vukmir Sold Out WI On Paul Ryan’s Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security Cuts

As Leah Vukmir spends today campaigning with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, it’s worth remembering Ryan’s career-long advocacy of deep, dangerous cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security — and that Leah Vukmir backs those devastating cuts.

It’s clear that, if elected to the U.S. Senate, Vukmir is poised to pick up the retiring Ryan’s legacy of pushing for deep cuts to vital programs that millions of Wisconsin retirees, kids, people with disabilities, and nursing home residents depend upon.

Here’s how Vukmir-Ryan cuts to earned benefits programs would hurt Wisconsinites:

On cuts to Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare, Vukmir stands with Paul Ryan and powerful corporate special interests — she isn’t looking out for everyday Wisconsinites, seniors, and future retirees.
