This may have been posted already, but in case it has not, here is one of the ads used in the recent election of a democrat in a republican leaning district.


The tactic? Mediscare. The style?

The election is a meaningless blip caused by an insane third party spoiler.

The ad didn't actually run in NY district.

Also:

"death panels"
"keep your government hands off my medicare"
"socialized medicine"
"an abortion in every pot"

et cetera.

Yes, exactly! The Republican Party should definitely campaign on the Ryan budget in 2012. I can think of no better way to recapture the Presidency and the Senate than to promise to repeal Medicare and replace it with the Affordable Care Act minus the funding.
