U.S. Chamber targets Bill Nelson on Florida TV

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today announced an ad campaign targeting Democrats across the country, including Florida. Sen. Bill Nelson. The 30-second spot is about Obamacare, claiming it will be a "nightmare" for Florida seniors.

The ad uses a false Republican claim that Democrats cut $500 billion from Medicare. It wasn't a cut, according to Politifact. It was a reduction in future growth (the size of the Medicare program will increase dollar-wise).
