GOP Maps Out Medicare Messaging Strategy Post NY-26


Hello Respected Hill Communicator!

I am going to talk to my boss about a franked mail piece that will hit people's mailboxes in our district in late July -

I am thinking of focusing on one of two issues:

1 - need to reform Medicare ( a defense of the Ryan plan )

2 - debt ceiling - why we must make structural changes to spending before we agree to pass a debt ceiling limit increase.

Do you have any thoughts on which one of these messages is better?


The email was passed my way by a source. Mortensen, did not respond to a request for comment, nor did the recipients.

This may be a penetrating glimpse into the obvious, but, as in this case and so many others in politics, if you're explaining, you're losing.
