Joni Ernst heard telling doners she wants to "change" Medicare & Medicaid

If her Trumperism doesn't hurt her at the polls this year,
maybe this will. One can only hope.

1. Never underestimate the ability of poorly informed voters to make

repeated bad decisions.

2. "Out of control spending"

Austerity is always the evil twin to Republican tax cuts.

...federal spending on non-discretionary programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security is "out of control" and will require "changes" in the future.

Oh really, now? Please explain, Sen. Ernst. Just how much of their hard-earned Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are America’s seniors going to have to give up to make sure the billionaires get to keep their 5+ homes and yachts with helicopter pads? We eagerly await your answer.

6. They pass a TRILLION Dollar Tax Cut for Billionaires & Corporations

and NOW want the Middle and Working classes to pay for it! -- Good luck with that!

I AM encouraged that the House, which controls the purse strings, has a Democratic Majority and should therefore be MOST unlikely to cut our Earned Benefit programs like Social and Medicare/Medicaid.

5. Democrats better start running ads using these politicans...

with the words coming out of their mouths, like when Drumpf mentioned "looking at" SS and Medicare while at Davos.
