Bachmann Campaign Asserts Opponent is Lying on Entitlement Issues

Once again the Clark campaign has come out with a blatant lie, accusing Congresswoman Bachmann of wanting to eliminate Social Security and Medicare.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has been clear she does not support ending Social Security.  Michele has stated both Medicare and Social Security need to be fixed.  Under their current conditions these programs can’t be maintained for our future generations because of liberal spending by politicians like President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Tarryl Clark. Michele remains committed to maintaining benefits for those who are receiving benefits as well as protecting the money future recipients have paid into the system.

Our retirement systems must be prepared to meet the needs of our growing population. Tarryl Clark, who supported and continues to support Obamacare, needs to explain to voters why Medicare was cut by $500 billion to pay for this monstrosity.

We found this transcript and analysis of the Tarryl Clark ad at 1500 ESPN.com

SCRIPT: Female narrator: “Addict. Addict. Addict. Addict.” Male voice: “Wait, what?” Narrator: “Well, Michele Bachmann says we need to `wean everybody off’ of Social Security. Like Social Security isn’t your money. Like it’s an addiction you need to break. If Michele Bachmann wants to wean you off Social Security, she sure can’t be trusted to protect it. Michele Bachmann: Keeping her pay raises, but not our promises to seniors.” Clark: “I’m Tarryl Clark and I approve this message.”
