I guess we know what Bill Johnson's integrity costs. It's a fundraiser with the Washington elite at the expense of the seniors of his district. Last week Bill Johnson hosted Newt Gingrich at an event in Columbiana County and now we know what is expected in return, a vote for a Republican budget plan that would end Medicare, as we know it. Was it worth selling out your constituents? Was it worth the cost of millions of dollars in senior's health care?
Johnson will tell you that the new plan is not a "death penalty" for Medicare, but the facts speak for themselves - the plan calls for an end to Medicare and for the establishment of an $8,000 annual subsidy that would be expected to cover all medical bills. How can Bill think this is responsible leadership knowing the elderly population we have in this district?
Do you want to know the cost of a rubber stamp, ask John Boehner and Newt Gingrich, they just bought one.
