U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte shielded her support for a controversial budget proposal yesterday that would cut federal expenses and replace guaranteed Medicare Plan with vouchers, saying it’s the only way to save Medicare and other entitlements like Social Security.
Ayotte, a Republican, was in town to receive the “Spirit of Enterprise” award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is given annually to a federal lawmaker who votes with business interests at least 70 percent of the time. In response to an audience question, Ayotte envisaged that the U.S. Supreme Court would rule against the individual mandate in President Obama’s health care revamp.
Ayotte, who sits on the Senate Budget Committee, mainly aimed her comments on the federal deficit and federal budget. The country is more than $15 trillion in debt, a reality that supersedes every decision Congress must make according to Ayotte. Ayotte held that she has supported previous budget proposals that decrease the rate of spending, and she’s backing the controversial “Ryan Budget” that would cut federal spending and replace guaranteed Medicare with vouchers for those who need it most. It would also increase the age of eligibility.
