(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Senator Scott Brown's campaign twice voted against
the controversial budget plans introduced by Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's new
running mate; however, that isn't stopping Elizabeth Warren's campaign from
taking aim at Brown.
In an email to supporters, Warren's field director, Mike Firestone, called Romney's choice of Ryan, a "wake-up call." It went on to say that Brown "supports a vice president who wants to end Medicare and replace it with a voucher system."
The debate over entitlement programs, specifically Medicare, seems to be taking center stage since Romney chose Rep. Ryan as his running mate.
Republicans applaud Ryan for taking what they believe was a bold stance, while Democrats say his plan to cut Medicare would be disastrous.
For months Warren's campaign has been seeking to link Brown to Romney. Brown's campaign, meanwhile, has been repeating that he is the "second most bipartisan senator" in the Senate, and has been willing to work with members of both parties. Brown's press secretary, Alleigh Marre, released this statement:
"There is only one candidate in this race who wants to gut Medicare, and that's Professor Warren. She supports cutting more than $700 billion dollars from current Medicare beneficiaries and raising Medicare taxes by $317 billion in order to pay for the new federal health care bill. That's wrong. Scott Brown believes we shouldn't make changes to Medicare that affect current seniors."
