'The Lie of the Year'

Medi-Scare attacks are beginning. Don't believe the mistruths.

As news spreads about Congressman Bishop recently being named 1 of the 12 most corrupt Members of Congress by a leading, independent watchdog group, Bishop’s campaign is predictably getting more and more desperate with their personal attacks against me.  In short, he’s just going to make things up and hope to fool you.

Unfortunately, that is what career politicians like Tim Bishop do when they see their grip on power beginning to slip away. 

This week, for instance, Congressman Bishop dishonestly accused me of wanting to end Medicare – a false claim meant to score political points by trying to scare senior citizens.

In fact, an independent fact-checking group called the claim, parroted by many Democrats, “The Lie of the Year.” 

The truth is that I will always fight to protect and preserve Medicare.  Not just for today’s seniors, but for future generations, a well. I will work with common sense people in both parties to ensure that Medicare is secure and solvent for years to come if I am elected this November.

Congressman Bishop, on the other hand, is the only candidate in this race who has voted to cut Medicare. In fact, Bishop slashed $700 billion from Medicare to pay for the big government takeover of our healthcare system pushed through by him, President Obama and Nancy Pelosi.  You may know it as Obamacare.

Obamacare will raise taxes on the middle-class and seniors; it will cost Long Island more jobs that we can’t afford to lose; and it will take important medical decisions out of the hands of doctors and patients, and put them in the hands of Washington, DC bureaucrats.  In short, Obamacare is bad for Long Island.

These “Medi-Scare” attacks are just the beginning of the Bishop campaigns’ month-long smear campaign to come.  As my campaign continues to surge, I fully expect Congressman Bishop to say or do anything he thinks could get him re-elected.

Fortunately, I trust the people of Suffolk County to do their own homework and not be fooled by his dishonest claims or irresponsible attacks.  If you read or hear something that doesn’t sound quite right, never hesitate to call my Campaign Headquarters at 631-775-9230 or email me at info@randy2012.com.

Thank you for your time.

See Jag... I called it almost 2 hours ago. :-) Underdog 8:28 pm on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 No Jag, he'll be along eventually. Knowing him he'll inflate the number of jobs Altschuler supposedly outsourced even higher while finding a way to deny Obama/Bishop outsourced anything.

Underdog you hold your politicians to a higher standard? Like Bush and Chaney that may be tried as war criminals.They started an illegal and immoral war which cost countless lives and about a trillion dollars which they ran off budget.The economy that they trashed with a banking system they imploded.With the help of such stellar individuals as Bachmann,Akin,Cantor and others.Keep deluding yourself.Denial can be comforting.

Tim Bishop is done, he is a lair and a crook! We need change and we need new direction and the man to do that is Randy Altschuler.

Nicely put, Lee. NO PRESIDENT can effectively work for the people if congress, etc. don't work with him/her. They are all corrupt and will only work with the president of their own party. It's all stupid and immature. Time to change how we run the government alltogether. Get rid of party lines already. If congress doesnt pass the budget THEY SHOULDNT GET PAID. Cut spending by NOT giving lifetime medical benefits to congressmen and their families after they have served their time.
