Marco Rubio cuts Medicare-centric testimonial ad for Romney, Ryan

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, one of the state's most-popular politician, has cut an ad touting presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Medicare plans, which came under fire after he picked Congressman Paul Ryan as a running mate. This ad is in English, but there's a good chance Rubio cut one in Spanish as well.

While the ad mentions the Romney-Ryan plan, which revolves around a subsidy for future seniors to buy private health insurane, the plan itself has yet to be defined in detail.


The script:

SEN. MARCO RUBIO: “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan get it. Medicare is going broke.”

VIDEO TEXT: “Marco Rubio”

 SEN. MARCO RUBIO: “That’s not politics. It’s math. Anyone who wants to leave Medicare like it is, is for letting it go bankrupt. My mother’s eighty-one and depends on Medicare.”

VIDEO TEXT: “The Romney-Ryan Plan”

VIDEO TEXT: “Preserving Medicare For Our Seniors”

VIDEO TEXT: “Strengthening Medicare For Our Future”

SEN. MARCO RUBIO: “We can save Medicare without changing hers, but only if younger Americans accept that our Medicare will be different than our parents’, when we retire in thirty years. But after all they did for us, isn’t that the least we can do?”

MITT ROMNEY: “I’m Mitt Romney, and I approved this message.”

It's funny how it's said that medicare would go broke around 2016 at the current pace..so if you leave it the same with no savings for those seniors that are currently receiving medicare the plan fails and falls short which would leave even the current seniors on the proposed new voucher program....so this proposal fails ! The 716 billion in savings now makes more sense and also reduces the out of pocket cost for prescriptions to seniors while also strengthen the program an additional 8 years, which is a much better way to go

Noonan was right

Why is Romney/Ryan talking about Medicare? Anytime they are not talking about the economy, they are losing.

Rubio comes across as the biggest liar in anything that he says. This guy flip-flops on more subjects than Romney and you know how bad he is. The GOP is full of these folks that lie about most everything that they discuss. .. and this commercial is definitely BS


The least I can do is to sacrifice my Medicare and let myself be thrown to the wolves of the private insurance market just so I can help subsidize my parents Medicare as well as help cover the loss in revenue coming from the result of the additional tax cuts they're proposing?

Sorry guys but I was laughing hysterically when I saw this horribly cheesy ad.
