The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is running automated phone calls in 20 GOP districts going after Republicans for their votes affecting the future of Medicare.
The calls are part of a new program called Medicare Action Center, which is designed to help Democrats pick up the 25 seats necessary to win the majority. Targets include Reps. Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Joe Heck (Nev.) and Lou Barletta (Pa.).
“Everyone agrees we must cut spending and tighten our belt, but Barletta has made the wrong choice,” the automated call in his district says. “Ending Medicare to pay for subsidies for Big Oil making huge profits or tax breaks for the ultra rich! That’s not right.”
Rep. Bill Cassidy has his blood drawn by Alesha Barbour during a free hepatitis screening in the Rayburn House Office Building hosted by the Congressional Viral Hepatitis Caucus to recognize "National Viral Hepatitis Testing Day."
Roll Call has launched a new feature, Hill Navigator, to advise congressional staffers and would-be staffers on how to manage workplace issues on Capitol Hill. Please send us your questions anything from office etiquette, to handling awkward moments, to what happens when the work life gets too personal. Submissions will be treated anonymously.
