Kanjorski Voted Against Medicare Part D
On June 27, 2003 at 2:33A.M. Congressman Paul Kanjorski casted a NO vote for the Medicare Part D benefit to SENIORS. In fact 195 Democrats voted against the Medicare Prescription Drug Modernization Act on that day. The bill passed by a 216-215 vote. If one more Democrat thought like Paul Kanjorski that day seniors would not have a Medicare Part D benefit paying for their prescriptions.
I heard Kanjorski on Steve Corbett's show this afternoon and couldn't believe he called Lou Barletta a liar on the facts about Social Security.
Kanjorski said the Republicans voted against Social Security. Here a link to the facts from the Social Security Administration that Paul Kanjorski lied. Out of 100 Republicans in the House only 15 voted against Social Security Act of 1935. In fact the Democrats had the same amount vote against it. Twenty Democrats and only four Repbulicans did not vote.
Paul Kanjorski has made a concerted effort to mischaracterize Barletta's position with respect to Social Security. His scare tactics are not holding water or passing the smell test.
