Jim Bognet: Matt Cartwright Wants to Raise Your Taxes and Take Away Your Healthcare

Cartwright supported higher taxes on Social Security and eliminating private health insurance plans

HAZLETON- Today, Jim Bognet, Former Trump Administration Official and Republican Nominee for Pennsylvania’s Eighth Congressional District, hit back on Matt Cartwright’s false claims to support Social Security and Medicare.

“Matt Cartwright falsely claims to support Social Security, when he in fact supported raising taxes on Social Security, which would directly hurt Pennsylvania seniors. Cartwright also supports the national Democrats’ radical plan to eliminate private insurance and replace it with a government-run healthcare plan. That would not only harm seniors on the existing Medicare program, but also take away the hard-earned benefits negotiated by many of NEPA’s unions and working folks.

“I love my mom and dad, and will never do anything to hurt them or any other person who relies on Social Security and Medicare. Matt Cartwright has done nothing of value in Congress for eight years and his whole strategy during this campaign is to distract voters by lying and falsely attacking me. Voters will see right through it.”
