Wis. Recall Ad Targets GOPer’s Support For Paul Ryan’s Medicare Plan (VIDEO)

One of the Democratic candidates in the Wisconsin recalls has a new ad up, attacking incumbent GOP state Sen. Alberta Darling for not just supporting the policies of Gov. Scott Walker — but also for supporting Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) proposal to privatize Medicare.

Darling has previously been seen supporting Ryan, and now it’s in an ad from Dem state Rep. Sandy Pasch.

“Alberta Darling — how could you?” the announcer asks. “Cutting education and health care, to give tax breaks to big corporations? Supporting the end of Medicare as we know it, while giving the richest a massive tax cut?”The ad then switches to Pasch speaking: “To balance the budget, everyone, from public workers to big corporations, has to do their part. Everybody has to sacrifice. WE can’t afford a $100 million tax break for big businesses. It’s just not the responsible thing to do.”

Also, the labor-backed group We Are Wisconsin PAC has this new ad, featuring schoolchildren attacking Darling on education issues:
