 Obama for America Releases New Television Ad: “Facts” CHICAGO --
Mitt Romney continues to mislead the American people about President Obama’srecord on Medicare – and skip the truth about his own plan to eliminate the guarantee of Medicareand provide people with a voucher to buy health care instead. To set the record straight, Obama for America is releasing a new television advertisement today titled “Facts” that cuts through the Romneycampaign's false and hypocritical attacks. Governor Romney cynically claims that Obamacareweakened Medicare solvency, when in fact the exact opposite is true. The President has extended thelife of the program by nearly a decade. If Romney had his way, it would run out of money by2016. The President’s health care law eliminates insurance company subsidies, and cracks down onwaste and fraud in Medicare – saving $716 billion – and doesn’t cut a single guaranteed Medicare benefit. Congressman Ryan included the same savings in his budget, which Romney called‘marvelous’ and said he’d sign into law. The nonpartisan AARP says the health care reform law strengthens Medicare by extending itssolvency and cracking down on fraud and wasteful subsides to insurance companies. And the AARPalso said that the Ryan plan would undermine Medicare and could lead to higher costs for seniors. Infact, the Romney-Ryan vouchers would eliminate Medicare’s guaranteed benefits and could raisehealth costs by up to $6,400 per year. That’s hardly the formula for moving America forward. “Facts” will air in New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado & Nevada. Please click

Whilethe House Republican budget proposal offersideas for confronting our nation's deficits anddebt, AARP believes the proposal lacks balance, jeopardizes the health and economic security of older Americans, and puts at risk the bipartisanagreement on FY 2013 discretionary spendinglevels included in last year’s Budget ControlAct. … The plan fails to realize the negotiating power of Medicare and its impact on loweringcosts for the Medicare program – such as in PartD of the program.
