The Romney campaign has released a powerful new television ad contrasting the Romney/ Ryan plan, which strengthens Medicare and protects the commitments made to current seniors, against Obama’s $716 billion cuts from Medicare.
Watch the new ad, called “Paid In.”:
Here’s the script for “Paid In”:
VOICEOVER: “You paid into Medicare for years…”
VIDEO TEXT: “You Paid”
VOICEOVER: “Every paycheck…”
VOICEOVER: “Now, when you need it…”
VIDEO TEXT: “Now When You Need It”
VOICEOVER: “Obama has cut $716 billion dollars from Medicare.”
VIDEO TEXT: “Obama Cut $716 Billion From Medicare”
VOICEOVER: “To pay for ObamaCare.”
VIDEO TEXT: “To Pay For ObamaCare”
VOICEOVER: “So now the money you paid for your guaranteed healthcare…”
VIDEO TEXT: “The Money You Paid For Guaranteed Healthcare”
VOICEOVER: “Is going to a massive new government program that’s not for you.’
VIDEO TEXT: “Massive New Government Program That’s Not For You”
VOICEOVER: “The Romney-Ryan plan protects Medicare benefits for today’s seniors and
strengthens the plan for the next generation.”
VIDEO TEXT: “Protects Medicare Benefits”
MITT ROMNEY: “I’m Mitt Romney, and I approve this message.”
“Paid In” may be the most effective ad of the 2012 presidential campaign.
As we recently reported, according to the most recent estimates from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, ObamaCare will reduce Medicare spending by $713 billion between 2013 and 2022, relative to prior law. These cuts directly affect current retirees. By contrast, both the Romney and Wyden-Ryan plans only affect retirees younger than 55.
Considering all that, it is hard to imagine why Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager, Stephanie Cutter, called Obama’s $700 million in Medicare cuts stolen from taxpayers to fund ObamaCare an “achievement.” Maybe it depends on what she means by “achievement.” You can watch Cutter make her absurd claim here.
