The Coveted Dick Morris Endorsement

The ruddy former Clinton aide backs Tommy Thompson. Though Morris is often compensated by campaigns, he's not getting paid for this one, says Thompson spokesman Darrin Schmitz.

Thompson wrote supporters today:

Today, I want to share with you a new video from the campaign…an endorsement from political analyst Dick Morris.

Dick references the work we did in Wisconsin on entitlement reform – specifically welfare reform – and the national model we created.

Entitlement reform is a key component in bringing true fiscal responsibility to Washington. Not long ago I outlined a policy initiative I referred to as “Ryan Plan Plus”, which enhances Congressman Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform proposal by allowing individuals now under 55-years old the option of remaining in the Medicare system or choosing private insurance.

I believe people will choose the private insurance option because a market-based solution will inject competition into the system and do a better job at controlling costs. As your next U.S. Senator, I will fight to introduce free market principles into government programs that will ultimately reduce spending and provide more freedom for our citizens.
