Donnelly’s TV ads misstate the facts

Well, the Democrats have once again reached into their moth-eaten pile of worn-out and over-used platitudes in their attempt to frighten seniors into voting for them. We seniors must be considered pretty dumb because they repeat the same falsehoods every election cycle and expect us to believe them.

Their campaign ads never change, just nasty accusations toward their opponents, nothing on their track record and always using the same scare tactics over and over: “Those bad Republicans are going to take away your Social Security and Medicare.” Hmm.

If there had been a contest this year, there is no doubt that Joe Donnelly would have taken first place for running the most blatant, fictional-based, prevaricating, delusional and downright offensive TV ads ever. Ever. Talk about bending the truth, Joe fractured it. Apparently Donnelly never read the healthcare bill where it absolutely and unequivocally transfers $716 billion dollars from seniors funded Medicare account into Obama’s unfunded Medicaid accounts for his social programs.

Folks, that’s nearly a trillion dollars. So enough of listening to all this nonsense about how Richard Mourdock’s going to mess with your Medicare — because Obama and Donnelly have already stripped it bare and Mourdock is just trying to save it. Are you going to allow make-believe campaign ads to impress you or do you want to know the real facts? You see, facts are persistent little buggers. You may deny them or avoid them, but you can’t really change them or they wouldn’t be facts.

So do a little research, and you’ll find out pretty quick who is messing with Medicare. Obamacare is being financed in great part with our Medicare funds. Joe Donnelly voted for Obamacare knowing it would reduce the availability of Medicare services to seniors and then has the nerve to go on TV and claim that Mourdock is going to take away our Medicare. Donnelly is the real threat to Medicare, Mourdock is the real solution to saving it.  

This is the truth — these are the facts. Now you got that? Good.
