South Dakota Republican U.S. House Candidate Kristi Noem signed a pledge today to protect Social Security for those in retirement and nearing retirement. The pledge also stated Noem would work to repeal the trillion dollar health care bill that included half a trillion in Medicare cuts that will hurt seniors dependent on the program.
"Seniors have worked hard and paid into the system and as South Dakota's next U.S. Representative I will protect Social Security for those in retirement and nearing retirement. I will oppose any efforts to privatize Social Security. For younger workers we need to look for bipartisan solutions that will keep the program solvent," said Noem.
"I will also work to repeal the trillion dollar health are bill passed this year that includes $500 million in cuts to Medicare. The bill puts bureaucrats between patients and their doctor and pays for it with cuts to essential programs like Medicare. This is the wrong direction for health care," said Noem.
"I wanted to make my position clear on this issue before others use the standard Washington, DC Democrat playbook to try and distort my record and scare seniors," said Noem.
