Seniors to Senator Begich "Don't Cut Medicare!"
New :30 Second TV Ad Begins Airing Today
ALEXANDRIA, Va. Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the 60 Plus Association released a new TV ad targeting Senator Mark Begich (D-Alaska). The ad features members of our Greatest Generation begging Sen. Begich not to cut Medicare to pay for health care reform. The :30 second TV ad will run in conjunction with a :60 second ad that began airing on Wednesday. See the ad at www.60plus.org or the Alaska :30 second version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErG0d-2vS9c
"Seniors have already lost their social security COLA, now Senator Begich wants to cut their Medicare, too? It may be Halloween, but let's stop Fright Night. Senator Begich should stand up to Senator Harry Reid and tell him 'I won't support any bill which cuts Medicare,'" said Jim Martin, President of 60 Plus.
Titled "Enough" the ad highlights seniors speaking in their own words to the fact that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid want to cut up to $500 billion from Medicare. This could mean life-saving drugs could be withheld and seniors could even be prevented from seeing their own doctors.
The ad ends with a senior stating "Don't make us pay for health care reform by cutting Medicare. We've sacrificed enough.""Since it's Halloween, Senator Begich should channel the Greatest American Hero or Superman defend our Greatest Generation and declare he will protect seniors by refusing to vote for any health care reform legislation which cuts Medicare," continued Martin.
