Weiland Continues Medicare Attack On Rounds

Weiland Continues Medicare Attack On Rounds

Two candidates vying for an open U.S. Senate seat are sparring over a television ad involving Medicare.

Democratic candidate Rick Weiland spoke out Tuesday against the ad put out by Republican candidate Mike Rounds. Weiland says that the ad is misleading and Rounds should debate him about the issue. Rounds, however, is sticking to his statement that more than $700 billion is being taken from the Medicare program.

"I think Mike (Rounds) needs to come out from behind his paid commercials and debate me face-to-face. Defend this bogus claim in person, Mike, or else pull it down and admit that it's false," Weiland said.

"The number are accurate, they are correct and Obamacare has been mis-directing and redirecting the funds out of the Medicare trust fund and it's being done through the Obamacare act," Rounds said.

Weiland is running unopposed for the Democratic nomination while Rounds is in a crowded Republican race against four others.

The primary election is June 3.
