As news spreads about Congressman Bishop recently being named 1 of the 12 most corrupt Members of Congress by a leading, independent watchdog group, Bishop’s campaign is predictably getting more and more desperate with their personal attacks against me. In short, he’s just going to make things up and hope to fool you.
Unfortunately, that is what career politicians like Tim Bishop do when they see their grip on power beginning to slip away.
This week, for instance, Congressman Bishop dishonestly accused me of wanting to end Medicare – a false claim meant to score political points by trying to scare senior citizens.
In fact, an independent fact-checking group called the claim, parroted by many Democrats, “The Lie of the Year.”
The truth is that I will always fight to protect and preserve Medicare. Not just for today’s seniors, but for future generations, a well. I will work with common sense people in both parties to ensure that Medicare is secure and solvent for years to come if I am elected this November.
Congressman Bishop, on the other hand, is the only candidate in this race who has voted to cut Medicare. In fact, Bishop slashed $700 billion from Medicare to pay for the big government takeover of our healthcare system pushed through by him, President Obama and Nancy Pelosi. You may know it as Obamacare.
Obamacare will raise taxes on the middle-class and seniors; it will cost Long Island more jobs that we can’t afford to lose; and it will take important medical decisions out of the hands of doctors and patients, and put them in the hands of Washington, DC bureaucrats. In short, Obamacare is bad for Long Island.
These “Medi-Scare” attacks are just the beginning of the Bishop campaigns’ month-long smear campaign to come. As my campaign continues to surge, I fully expect Congressman Bishop to say or do anything he thinks could get him re-elected.
Fortunately, I trust the people of Suffolk County to do their own homework and not be fooled by his dishonest claims or irresponsible attacks. If you read or hear something that doesn’t sound quite right, never hesitate to call my Campaign Headquarters at 631-775-9230 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time.
