New DNC TV Ad: “Republicans Have Opposed Medicare From The Start”

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The Democratic National Committee has a new TV ad on national and D.C. cable, firing back at GOP attacks that allege the Dems would weaken Medicare by playing up an obvious theme — that the Republicans have long opposed Medicare, and have repeatedly voted to weaken or even abolish it:

“America’s seniors have relied on Medicare for over 40 years – and Democrats are working to strengthen Medicare,” the announcer says. “But the plain truth is, Republicans have opposed Medicare from the start. Their leaders have called for cutting Medicare — and now for killing it.”
