Seniors Strike Back:

One of the country’s largest grassroots organizations, with 1.5 million members and supporters, USA Next-United Seniors Association (USA) is sponsoring TV and radio ads in 20 states denouncing politicians who make demagogic arguments on Social Security and Medicare.

The ads, featuring Art Linkletter, send the message that America’s seniors have had enough of the dishonest manipulation of their votes. “Politicians who use senior scare tactics on Social Security and Medicare deserve the strongest public rebuke,” said Charlie Jarvis, chairman and chief executive of USA Next-United Seniors. “This despicable political tactic is the lowest form of the ‘politics of invented fear’ and seniors are not taking it any more.”
