A vote for Patsy Keever is a vote for average Americans

Patsy Keever is running to represent WNC’s 10th District in Congress. This race presents a clear choice for voters. Patsy has stood up for “We, the People” all her life, from her teaching career to her service in the N.C. Legislature.

On the other hand, her opponent, Patrick McHenry, has voted repeatedly for laws that help the rich get richer. Rather than tax the wealthy, he prefers to pull the safety net out from under the rest of us. That’s just not the American way.

As a geriatric care manager I’m quite concerned that Patrick McHenry supports the Republican plan to undermine Medicare, the plan created by vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. This plan funnels taxpayer dollars into the pockets of the insurance industry, while cutting benefits for the American people.

Insurance executives are spending millions of dollars on advertising to deceive the public about the true nature of the Paul Ryan Medicare overhaul. Social Security is next on the chopping block.

It’s not necessary to balance the budget on the backs of the poor and middle-class like Paul Ryan and Patrick McHenry want to do.

A vote for Patsy Keever is a vote for average Americans.
