Nevada Democrats running for House seats plan to make Paul Ryan's plan to privatize Medicare a top issue in their campaigns, they told reporters in a conference call Thursday.
"The Ryan budget is now the defining issue of this election" said state House Speaker John Oceguera, who is running against Republican Rep. Joe Heck. "My opponent voted for the Ryan budget that would give more budget busting tax cuts to millionaires, at the expense of medicare."
State Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford, who is running for the state's new 4th District called Ryan's plan "dangerous."
And former Rep. Dina Titus, who is running for the open seat of Senate candidate Shelley Berkley, said Romney is now inextricably linked to the plan: "He now owns these positions, and he now owns the cuts that are in that Ryan budget. The more he attempts to explain them, the worse they sound."
