Mike Haridopolos Needs To Put Whatever He Uses On His Hair Into His Spine

This is embarrasing.

This morning, Haridopolos got thrown off a Florida radio show for going wobbly on the Paul Ryan Medicare plan, including not wanting to say yes or no on whether he supports it.

Then, his campaign issued a press release, which you can read below the fold. The key nugget of which is this line, “I absolutely support the goals of the Ryan Plan to cut federal government deficit spending and applaud Rep. Ryan’s bold leadership in putting forth an intelligent and serious plan to tackle the largest issue confronting our nation.” That line is subsequently repeated in the 222 words.

In between the repetition is this: “While I support almost every provision of the Ryan Plan, I believe that it must be amended to provided greater protections for Seniors.”

After all that, Haridopolos is now a solid “no” on the Ryan plan, claiming he’d vote against it.

What. The. Heck?! Perhaps he needs to take some of whatever he puts in his hair to keep it stiff and put it on his spine instead.

Full statement below the fold.

US Senate candidate Mike Haridopolos made the following statement regarding his strong support for protecting Florida’s Seniors.

I absolutely support the goals of the Ryan Plan to cut federal government deficit spending and applaud Rep. Ryan’s bold leadership in putting forth an intelligent and serious plan to tackle the largest issue confronting our nation. Rep. Ryan’s leadership in actually putting forth a plan to tackle the deficit is in stark contrast to the irresponsibility demonstrated by President Obama and the Democratic Senate who have failed to pass a budget for over 750 days, adding trillions to the debt during that time. While I support almost every provision of the Ryan Plan, I believe that it must be amended to provided greater protections for Seniors.

Fighting for Seniors is not new to me. One of the main reasons I fought ObamaCare, including passing Florida’s Health Care Freedom Act, is because of the devastating cuts it dealt to Seniors, cutting $500 billion from Medicare to fund ObamaCare-Welfare programs.

Again, I absolutely support the goals of the Ryan Plan and believe in almost all of the provisions to cut federal government deficit spending and address entitlements. As a candidate for the US Senate, I am the only person in this race with a proven record of reforming entitlements [Medicaid, Government Pensions, and Welfare] and a demonstrated commitment to making cuts to balance the budget in the state of Florida without increasing taxes or fees.
