|Remember when Patrick Murphy backed “across the board” “structural reforms” to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid that would also entail cuts to those programs? We do – and it’s all on video right herewhen Murphy sat down for an interview with CNN back on January 2, 2013.
Of course, now that Murphy’s running in a Democratic primary, he’s following Alan Grayson’s liberal lead like a lost puppy. Just last weekAlan Grayson called for an increase to Social Security benefits, despite the program’s financial difficulties. Predictably, Murphy then released a statement saying he wanted to increase benefits too and sent a laughable fundraising email criticizing Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for wanting to “reform” Social Security and Medicare.
The question Democratic primary voters have to ask is which Patrick Murphy would they get in the Senate? The 2013 Murphy that backed McConnell-style reforms to entitlements, or the 2015 Murphy that will say anything to get elected?
