Brian Barnes released a video this week about Rep. Erik Paulsen's support of the Ryan budget and the impact it could have locally.

Brian Barnes, DFL candidate for Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District, released a video this week criticizing Rep. Erik Paulsen (R) for his support of the Ryan Budget.

In the video, Barnes claims the Ryan budget would have "huge cost implications" on Paulsen's own district. Specifically, Barnes said it would hurt seniors, students and companies in the medical industry.

"My opponent voted in support with the Ryan budget to get rid of Medicare as we know it," Barnes said. "Instead of paying medical costs, it turns it into limited voucher system that would cost seniors at least $6,000 more per year, out of their own pocket. This means $708 million dollars from right here in our district."

Brian is a leader that will represent our district in a manner that will save what we have worked to build. Furthermore, Brian will build upon that to create new and well paying jobs. Paulsen is the problem, not the solution to our do nothing Congress. As far as I'm concerned, Paulsen should pay back his Reprentative wage because he didn't work a lick for that money! Eskimo
