Ads hit Sens. Heller and Brown, Rep. Rehberg on Medicare
The Hill - November 16, 2011
Americans United for Change, a labor-backed liberal group, is up with a small ad buy criticizing Sens. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.) and Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) for backing House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) plan to privatize Medicare.
"If you cut my Medicare, Senator Heller, I'll remember it every time I visit my doctor. I'll remember you cut Medicare and Medicaid every time I fill a prescription," says the narrator, who is seemingly an older woman, in one version of the ad. "I'll remember you cut Medicare every time I fall or get hurt. I'll remember you protected millionaires over protecting my health. My friends will remember it, too — all of them. Call Senator Heller. Tell him to protect Medicare and Medicaid."
