Krystal Ball Calls on Opponent to Denounce Rep. Ryan’s Plans to Privatize Social Security and Medicare
Wittman Campaigning with Advocate of Risky Wall Street Plan to Privatize Social Security and Medicare Fredericksburg, VA- September 24, 2010- Today, Krystal Ball – a reform-mind candidate for Congress in the First District of Virginia – asked her opponent, incumbent Rep. Rob Wittman, to immediately denounce his support of plans to privatize Social Security and Medicare. Earlier this week, the Wittman campaign brought in Congressman Paul Ryan from Ohio to campaign. Rep. Ryan is an outspoken advocate of the privatization of social security and Medicare, and is best known for his book, “Road Map for Americas Future.” In the book, Rep. Ryan outlines plans for a massive privatization of Medicare and advocates investing hard-working American’s retirement money in risky Wall Street stocks. On Wednesday, incumbent First District Congressman Rob Wittman spent the day traveling around First District of Virginia campaigning with the pro-privatizing Congressman. In fact, Rep. Wittman was so enthusiastically supportive of Ryan’s plan to privatize Medicare and Social Security he remarked in a story in Thursday’s Free-Lance Star, "I think his roadmap is a great option," he went on to say, "It's well thought out. He had the courage to put ideas out there." “Rep. Wittman calling Paul Ryan’s plans to privatize Social Security and gut Medicare ‘a great option’ may make him popular with his political crowd in Washington, but it will do nothing for the security and health of seniors in the First District of Virginia,” said Krystal Ball, a reformminded candidate running against Rep. Wittman. “If Rep. Wittman’s priority is First District seniors, he’ll immediately denounce his support for this risky roadmanp.” A lifelong Virginian who was raised in King George County, Krystal Ball is a graduate of the University of Virginia. She is a small business owner and a Certified Public Accountant. ### Krystal Ball for Congress, 105 William St, Fredericksburg VA 22401 www.KrystalBallforCongress.com
