McDonnell, O’Malley Spar Over Medicare

August 19, 2012

Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia and Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland sparred on NBC's Meet the Press over the future of Medicare, an issue that has dominated the last week of the presidential race.

McDonnell repeated the standard GOP talking points on Medicare, taking up the argument made by Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan that something needs to be done before the program runs out of money.

“To say that we’re taking seniors and literally throwing them off the cliff… is really just disingenuous,” McDonnell said. “If we don’t reform this Medicare system, when Mr. O’Malley and I get to 65, it’s not going to be solvent, and our families won’t be taken care of.”

 

Said O'Malley: “Romney’s plan is for a country of less, where we actually cap what we do to protect the security of seniors and tell them, 'you’re on your own, good luck,'” O’Malley said.
