The DCCC just released a new TV ad in the race for NE-02, “Count On,” reminding Nebraskans that Don Bacon poses a clear threat to their hard-earned benefits.
Bacon consistently voted to threaten Social Security and gut Medicare, delivering devastating cuts to benefits that seniors depend on and have earned. He wants to raise the age of retirement — making Nebraskans work longer — and opposed efforts to expand Medicare to individuals under 60.
The ad — the second to run in NE-02 from the DCCC — is airing in Omaha beginning today.
“We’ve earned it. It’s a promise we count on.
But Congressman Don Bacon would break that promise — voting to threaten Social Security, and to gut Medicare — making devastating cuts to critical care seniors depend on.
Bacon even supported raising the retirement age — forcing Nebraskans to work longer.
BACON: ‘We’re going to have to be willing to revise that retirement age’
We can’t count on Congressman Bacon. He’s not for us.”
