A media advisory from Jack Conway's campaign teases that he will announce an endorsement from a "seniors' group" on Tuesday.
Conway will speak at a roundtable at the Twig and Leaf Restaurant in Louisville, a popular diner on Bardstown Road.
I would expect Conway to follow up on a WHAS11 story from Monday that shows Paul's campaign denying that he is proposing a $2,000 Medicare deductible, juxtaposed with a series of videos dug up by Conway's campaign in which Paul suggests a $2000 Medicare deductible for future generations.
Conway to focus on protecting Kentucky seniors at roundtable in Jefferson County Tuesday
Conway announces endorsement from seniors’ group
Paul would impose a $2,000 Medicare deductible; raise retirement age
LOUISVILLE – United States Senate candidate Jack Conway will focus protecting older Kentuckians as he meets with several seniors at a roundtable TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5 at the Twig and Leaf Restaurant in Louisville.
While at the roundtable, Conway will announce getting the endorsement of a seniors’ group.
This discussion comes following Rand Paul’s repeated calls for higher Medicare deductibles, including during remarks he made in June 2009. During that appearance, Paul said, "You really need higher deductibles. The real answer to Medicare would be a $2,000 deductible. But try selling that one in an election."
This undue burden Paul wants to put on Kentucky seniors comes in addition to his attacks on Social Security. He told Fox News Sunday that he wants to raise the retirement age for Kentuckians.
