"The Democrats’ shameless scare tactics are merely a way to mislead voters and cover up the real Democrat plan to watch Medicare die a painful death, an unacceptable option for America’s seniors," Joanna Burgos, spokeswoman for the National Republican Congressional Committee said in a statement. "The reality is that the Republican budget blueprint saves Medicare for future generations with no disruption for those in and near retirement, while the Democrats’ plan cuts Medicare benefits and raises taxes on job creators and every person who receives a paycheck."
Democrats need a net gain of 25 seats to regain control of the House next year.
