DCCC’s Dishonest Medi-Scare Campaign Won’t Fool New Yorkers

Today the New York State Republican Party responded to DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s new television ad campaign:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, led by New York’s own Steve Israel, is out with their first campaign ad of the 2012 season, in which they falsely accuse a Republican Congressman of voting to “end Medicare.”

Democrats tried these “Medi-scare” tactics last year, and they failed:

In New York’s 9th Congressional District, Republican Bob Turner won in a three-to-one Democratic district not held by a Republican since 1923 and in a swing Nevada district, the Republican won by twenty-two points.

Neither Barack Obama nor Congressional Democrats have a plan to save Medicare from bankruptcy.

In fact, only one bill in history signed by an American President actually removed funds from Medicare.

It was Obamacare, written by Democrats, signed into law by Barack Obama and passed with the votes of Steve Israel, Dan Maffei, Bill Owens, Paul Tonko, Louise Slaughter, Nita Lowey and Tim Bishop.

Team Obama’s doubling down on a failed attack line speaks volumes about their lack of confidence in their own record.

And Americans know why Democrats don’t want to discuss that:

Obama promised hope and change, but the legacy of his domestic legislative and regulatory agenda is high unemployment, the worst economic recovery in
70 years, four years of trillion-dollar deficits and the most federal government spending since World War II.

Come January, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will put America back on the path to fiscal sanity and economic prosperity.

Dick Cheney Speaks From the Heart: Obama an ‘Unmitigated Disaster’

April 16, 2012 at 7:00 am (Dick Cheney, Disaster, Hindenburg, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, President Obama, Republican Party, Wyoming)

Dick Cheney should apologize – to unmitigated disasters everywhere.

The Hindenburg looks at this administration as a disaster.

From the Daily Caller:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney walked onstage without any assistance and spoke for an hour and 15 minutes without seeming to tire in his first public engagement since he underwent a heart transplant three weeks ago.
He sat in a plush chair throughout the long chat with daughter Liz Cheney and looked decidedly healthier than recent appearances where he has been gaunt and used a cane.
Cheney even threw in a couple of political plugs amid much reminiscing at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.
He said the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is going to do a “whale of a job.” He said it’s never been more important than now to defeat a sitting president and the Republican Party should unite behind Romney.
“He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country,” Cheney said of President Barack Obama.

Good to see Cheney still has the heart of a fighter…
