CHICAGO—Today, Obama for America released the new television advertisement “Promise,” detailing how President Obama knows that Medicare is a sacred trust with our seniors: if you work hard and pay in, your Medicare benefits are guaranteed. It explains how Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would break this promise, turning Medicare into a voucher system, and eliminating Medicare’s guarantee. Instead of that guarantee, seniors could pay $6,400 more a year out of their own pockets – which is why AARP has declared that such a voucher plan “would undermine the market power of Medicare.”
“Promises” will air in Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia on Saturday.
"It's a promise that was made long ago. You work hard, pay in. Your Medicare benefits are guaranteed. But Mitt Romney would break that promise...replace your benefits with a voucher."
"Insurance companies could just keep raising rates. .Instead of a guarantee, seniors could pay sixty four hundred dollars more a year. AARP says the plan Mitt Romney supports undermines Medicare. Mitt Romney. An end to the Medicare Promise."
