Learn about Nancy Johnson’s record of flip-flopping on Medicare Prescription Drug penalties and Social Security.

TEXT of WEB AD:

“Good Game”

NJ: You know, politics is a lot like baseball. You gotta be able to step up to the plate and deliver.

Narrator: Nancy Johnson talks a good game, but her record is hardly a homerun.

NJ: I oppose privatizing social security.

Narrator: In fact, Nancy Johnson told the National Taxpayers’ Union that she supports private social security accounts.

NJ: The cost of medicine is just too high.

Narrator: But the Medicare prescription drug law Nancy Johnson helped write forbids the federal government from negotiating discounts with drug companies. That increases costs for both taxpayers and seniors. And just a few weeks ago, Nancy Johnson switched her position on penalties for seniors who haven’t enrolled yet in Medicare’s drug plan. After supporting penalties for years, now she opposes them.

NJ: I have a reputation as one of the most independent members of the United States Congress.

Narrator: In fact, Nancy Johnson votes in lockstep with her party almost 80% of the time. Nancy Johnson’s words may sound like a homerun, but her record is a lot more like a strike out. Call Nancy Johnson. Tell her to step up to the plate for Connecticut, for a change
