We noted last week that the Mark Critz will try to make the Medicare changes in the conservative House Republican budget an issue throughout the fall campaign against challenger Keith Rothfus. The Democrat's first hit concerned WVa Republican David McKinley's problems with the budget (which Rothfus supports) and today his campaign points to another GOP effort to knock the Ryan plan. This one comes from the Senate campaign of Montana Republican Denny Rehberg, and an ad the state party is running in his challenge of Democrat Jon Tester.

From the Critz camp:

"The budget that Keith Rothfus supports is so bad for senior citizens, even conservative Republicans say that it harms seniors," Mark Critz's spokesman Mike Mikus said. ""Keith Rothfus wants to replace Medicare's guaranteed benefit with a voucher program that would force seniors to pay $6,000 more per year for out-of-pocket expenses, all so millionaires like himself can get even more tax cuts. Seniors can't afford a plan like that, and they sure can't afford to send millionaire Keith Rothfus to Washington."
