NEW AD: Republicans Voted to End Medicare: How Will You Pay?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) today released a web video, “How Will You Pay?,” as part of its grassroots campaign to hold 25 House Republicans accountable for choosing to end Medicare rather than end taxpayer giveaways for Big Oil making record profits or tax breaks for the ultra rich. Everyone agrees we must cut spending and tighten our belt, but House Republicans have made all the wrong choices.

“This is a defining moment for House Republicans: they chose to end Medicare rather than end taxpayer giveaways for Big Oil or tax breaks for the ultra rich,” said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel.  “Seniors who pay a lifetime into Medicare deserve the benefits they’ve earned. Under the Republican plan, if you make over a million dollars, you win the lottery. If you’re a senior, you lose your Medicare. That’s not right.”

The DCCC is also issuing a grassroots challenge: if the DCCC raises $25,000 over the 48 hours the DCCC will run this web video as its first TV ad of the cycle in Speaker John Boehner’s district.

In 25 targeted districts, the DCCC will also be running news-weather-traffic radio ads, web ads, automated and live phone calls, and sending nearly 4.5 million “action alert” e-mails throughout the next two weeks. 

Stay tuned for more information as the Drive for 25 campaign continues…
