Obama Ad "It Gets Worse"

The Honest Politician Analysis : This Obama ad quotes a recent Wall Street Journal article where Douglas Holtz Eakin(McCain's economic advisor) admits to a reporter that McCain's reform could "result in cuts of $1.3 trillion over 10 years" to Medicaid and Medicare. McCain's campaign - which puts that figure at $882 billion for Medicare alone (information extracted from the Center for American Progress). In this ad, the Obama campaign uses several shots of distressed seniors to send the 'real' message to the seniors that are struggling today under Bush's current plan, which will get worse with McCain's plan.

Thank you for getting this blog together. A centralized spot where all these ads are is great for someone like me that lives in Texas where we arew sure McCain will win. Thak God the entire country does not think like the majority of my fellow Texans.
