New Pryor ad hits Tom Cotton on Medicare

Posted By on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 7:15 AM

Sen. Mark Pryor released a new ad today, first reported on Talking Points Memo, that continues his attack on Republican opponent Tom Cotton on Medicare. Cotton has voted for proposals that would eventually privatize the program.

Pryor gave a well-received speech on the topic Friday in Little Rock. I expect we'll be hearing a lot more about it.

Tom Cotton today faces a graphic reminder, too, of his past vote against disaster relief for hurricane victims on the East Coast. In Arkansas today, every politician will be striving mightily — and appropriately — to muster as much government aid as possible for victims of yesterday's storms.

Cotton was one of only 67 House members to vote against the appropriations bill that put $6.2 billion in the federal disaster aid fund. Money that eventually will be coming to Arkansas for this tornado.
