(BISMARCK, ND) – With Election Day only 54 days away, Kevin Cramer is desperately trying to paper over his record of supporting cuts to Social Security and Medicare. Last week, Cramer once again called for “tweak[s]” to both programs, arguing that they weren’t the same as cuts and that no one approaching eligibility for the programs would be affected.
But, as PolitiFact pointed out, “experts said” calls for such tweaks like raising the eligibility age and increasing means testing “could be interpreted as calls for cuts,” a position Cramer “has held… for years.”
No wonder The Forum’s Jack Zaleski called Cramer “one of the best fudge masters in Washington, D.C.”
