Kreibich launches online ad bashing Gottheimer on Social Security

By Nikita Biryukov, July 02 2020 4:08 pm

House challenger Arati Kreibich launched a new digital ad accusing Rep. Josh Gottheimer of voting to take $2.9 trillion out of the Social Security surplus.

“One thing this COVID-19 crisis has taught us is we have to take care of our seniors. That’s why I was outraged when our Congressman Josh Gottheimer voted to gut social security,” Kreibich says in the 25-second spot.

The claim is based off a 2018 vote Gottheimer made on a balanced budget amendment that the fact-checking website Snopes rated mostly-false.

The Amendment did not explicitly allow social security funds to be diverted elsewhere and did not come close to securing the two-thirds majority needed to pass.
