Let’s take a look at this ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee that’s running in West Virginia:
In case you missed it, Alex Knepper points out the problem with this ad:
“Manchin supports Barack Obama’s big government agenda…Manchin supported the government takeover of healthcare that cuts Medicare…”
The words “Government takeover of healthcare” are actually juxtaposed with “Cuts Medicare” on the screen.
Do these newfound entitlement-lovers think that these cuts were made because Nancy Pelosi enjoys watching old people suffer?
It reminds me of the protesters against ObamaCare that were showing up at Town Hall’s in the Summer of 2009 saying that they opposed a government take over of health care because they didn’t want the government touching their Medicare, or the poll numbers showing that 25% of Republicans didn’t know that Medicare was a government program.
Campaigning against one government program by saying it will make cuts in another government program is not limited government, people.
