Bernie-Balter Healthcare Plan Would Destroy Medicare

Syracuse, New York – Katko for Congress today released a new ad highlighting the disastrous impact of the Bernie-Balter government run healthcare plan, which would raise taxes on the middle class, end private insurance, and destroy Medicare as we know it.

Dana Balter is a full-fledged supporter of Medicare-for-All, but has lied to Central New York voters about her plan to raise taxes to fund the scheme.  Former Vice President and presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Joe Biden, has exposed Balter’s lie about Medicare-for-All: It is a government takeover of healthcare that will cost 30 trillion dollars to implement, and raise taxes on the middle class.  

Balter’s healthcare plan is pushed by socialist Bernie Sanders, who openly boasts that Medicare-for-All will raise personal taxes.  Implementing this dangerous plan would destroy Medicare, to the detriment of the millions of seniors currently enrolled in the program.

“Dana Balter continues to lie to voters about her healthcare plan, which would raise taxes and destroy Medicare for seniors,” said Tom Haag, Campaign Manager for Katko for Congress. “Seniors in Central New York rely on Medicare, and have paid into it their entire lives. But Balter is all in on far-left, socialist Bernie Sanders’ radical plan to end Medicare as we know it.  The dangerous Bernie-Balter plan would not only destroy private insurance and increase taxes on families, but jeopardize care for millions of seniors.”The ad, which can be accessed here, will begin airing immediately on area cable, broadcast, and on digital platforms.  It will run alongside ‘Balter vs Biden‘ which was released last week.
