SEIU radio ad attacks 'Romney-Ryan' plan for Medicare
Service Employees International Union today launched a radio ad in Florida attacking the "Romney-Ryan" plan for Medicare and Medicaid. The ad features a fictional convesation between an elderly sounding woman and her son, who warns her about the changes.
"What’s the truth about Romney and Ryan?" the mother asks. Her son replies: "Well the Romney Ryan plan does essentially end Medicare, that’s what the Wall Street Journal said."
Mom: Jeffrey, it’s your mother.
Man: Hey mom, how are you?
Mom: I’m good.
Man: What ya doing?
Mom: Well I’ve been watching TV all day but it’s been making my head spin.
Man: What’ya mean?
Mom: All these ads about Medicare, it’s very confusing.
Man: I’ve read about it, what do you want to know?
Mom: What’s the truth about Romney and Ryan?
Man: Well the Romney Ryan plan does essentially end Medicare, that’s what the Wall Street Journal said.
Mom: I don’t like the sound of that.
Man: What I read said seniors would wind up paying over $6000 dollars more per year.
Mom: That’s a fortune to me.
Man: And Romney would make drastic cuts to Medicaid too, you know two-thirds of seniors rely on Medicaid for nursing home care?
Mom: Boy, that’s scary.
Man: Here mom, I’m on my computer, go to this website, Medicare Romney Ryan Dot Com and have a look for yourself.
Mom: Okay hon, take care.
