Ovide Lamontagne said that "Paul Ryan has got a great plan"to voucherize Medicare; now he is trying to run from that plan.
CONCORD - The New Hampshire Democratic Party released the following web video about Ovide Lamontagne's efforts to distance himself for support of Paul Ryan's radcal plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program.
"Ovide Lamontagne has said that 'Paul Ryan has got a great plan' and that he 'wants to work with Paul Ryan,'" said Raymond Buckley, Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "But during a debate this morning, he claimed that he did not support Paul Ryan's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program. Either Ovide Lamontagne is not being honest with the voters of New Hampshire about his plans for Medicare, or he simply doesn't understand a plan that he has repeatedly said he supports."
Lamontagne supports block granting Medicare and allowing the state to control the critical health care program - a plan that has been called potentially destructive by the New Hampshire Committee on Aging.
