Amanda Carpenter of The Washington Times reports:
60 Plus, the conservative alternative to the American Association of Retired Persons, will begin airing a national ad on cable networks Friday evening that applauds seniors for surviving the Great Depression and World War II and warns Congress against making cuts to Medicare to pay for health care reform.
"Congress plans to pay for health care reform by cutting $500 billion from Medicare,” the narrator in the ad cautions. “For seniors that will mean long waits for care, cuts to MRI’s, CAT scans and other vital tests. Seniors may lose their own doctors. The government, not doctors will decide if older patients are worth the costs."
The group is spending $1.6 million to put the spot [on the air].
