New DCCC Ad: Congressman Gibson and Romney Put “Party First”
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching an Independent Expenditure campaign TV ad exposing Congressman Chris Gibson (NY-19) for putting his party - including Mitt Romney - first at the expense of seniors and the middle class. Congressman Gibson supported the Romney-Ryan budget that AARP says, “will increase costs for beneficiaries while removing Medicare’s promise of secure health coverage.” The DCCC ad will begin running Tuesday.
Recent polling shows that Mitt Romney is an anchor weighing down New York Republicans. Both Siena and Quinnipiac polls show Obama outperforming his 2008 results statewide. Speaker Boehner has said this will be a major drag on New York Republicans like Congressman Gibson, and that they are “frankly pretty vulnerable.”
Script of DCCC IE AD “Party First”:
Voiceover: Chris Gibson and Mitt Romney don't seem to get that everybody pays for their Medicare.
They both wanted to end the Medicare guarantee to pay for even more tax breaks for the wealthy.
AARP said the budget Mitt Romney and Chris Gibson supported, quote, “will increase costs for beneficiaries while removing Medicare’s promise of secure health coverage.”
