GOP to Launch Rebuttal to Dems on Medicare

Thursday, 12 May 2011 02:21 PM

By Dan Weil

House Republicans had the courage to vote for Medicare reform, and now the party is working to make sure they don’t pay a price for that stance in next year’s elections, Politico reports. Democrats have tried to portray the vote as an attack on Medicare recipients.

In response, the Republican National Committee will commence a three-week Medicare ad campaign Friday on Fox. The initial spot attacks Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Calif.

The ad states: “McNerney and President Obama’s Medicare plan empowers bureaucrats to interfere with doctors, risking seniors’ access to treatment. Now, Obama’s budget plan lets Medicare go bankrupt: That’d mean big cuts to benefits. Tell McNerney to stop bankrupting Medicare.”

Economists of all stripes agree that the $14.3 trillion government debt can’t be brought under control without curbing Medicare spending.
