    GOP: Obama Budget " a shocking Aatack on seniors"

    The head of the GOP’s Congressional election arm has framed the 2014 midterm elections. Today. Republicans are the defenders of Social Security, keeping it safe and whole from attacks on it by the Democratic president.

    REP. GREG WALDEN (R-OR), CHAIRMAN, NRCC: Well, I thought it very intriguing in that the budget really lays out kind of a shocking attack on seniors, if you will. And we haven’t seen all the detail yet, and we’ll look at it, but I’ll tell you, when you’re going after seniors the way he’s already done on Obamacare, taking $700 billion out of Medicare to put into Obamacare, and now coming back at seniors again, I think you’re crossing that line very quickly here in terms of denying access to seniors for health care in districts like mine, certainly, and around the country. I think he’s going to have a lot of pushback from some of the major senior organizations on this and Republicans, as well.
