Steve Ferrara welcomes endorsment of Medicare-cutting advocate

PHOENIX — Steve Ferrara is welcoming the endorsement of Congressman Steve Stivers, who recently called for cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

According to Stivers and Washington Republicans, cuts to safety net programs would be used to pay for the GOP tax plan that passed on party lines last year to benefit wealthy earners while at the same time undermining Americans’ access to health care.

It was reported this week that the budget deficit has doubled in the past year under Republican leadership.

“Arizona Republicans are embracing Washington policies that benefit Washington donors at the expense of working families,” said Les Braswell, communications director for the Arizona Democratic Party. “Steve Ferrara is showing that if he’s sent to Washington, he won’t vote the interests of his constituents.”
