Ron Klein, CD22, says he’s “comfortable” with his vote for health care overhaul
In today’s Post on Politics, George Bennett quotes the indomitable Ron Klein:
“I really have a good sense of the district and a sense of benefits that this bill will provide to the district,” Klein said in an afternoon conference call with reporters.
“Ultimately I think it’s the right thing to do and people will judge you based on using your best judgment and I’m very comfortable that I’m using my best judgment in making this decision.”
When asked how he will explain the $500B cuts in Medicare to the 125K seniors in the district, our Congressman answered:
“These are not cuts in benefits. They’re cuts to their profit margin,” said Klein, citing Congressional Budget Office and General Accounting Office estimates that the savings can be achieved by curbing overpayments, waste, fraud and abuse.
To Ron of course, “Profit Margin” and “overpayments, fraud and abuse” are one and the same thing. This is our “champion of small business” talking.
Klein’s replacement after the November elections, Lt. Colonel Allen West, had this to say:
“That figure will mean a decrease in services to our seniors and also with this bill passing you’re going to see doctors refusing Medicare patients. Our seniors are going to be adversely affected.”
You go Ron! FAR AWAY. Please.
