Cotton has voted to eliminate free cancer screenings, flu shots and wellness visits that seniors enjoy right now
This week, Pryor for Senate will highlight how Cotton’s campaign promise of “zero changes” for current seniors and those nearing retirement is blatantly false
LITTLE ROCK — In Congress, Rep. Tom Cotton has taken every opportunity to undermine Medicare’s guaranteed benefits for seniors, repeatedly voting to begin turning the program over to insurance companies, raise the age of eligibility to 70 and cut benefits for seniors today.
On the campaign trail, Cotton has come under fire for his uniquely irresponsible votes against Arkansas seniors, which is why he has begun repeating the false claim that he supports “zero changes” for today’s seniors and those nearing retirement.
The facts tell a different story, however, as Cotton has supported and voted for plans that would cut benefits now for seniors on Medicare and Social Security.
Among the most immediate examples are Cotton’s votes to end free cancer screenings, flu shots, and wellness visits for seniors on Medicare.
