Angry old coots: More to come

Posted By on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 8:38 AM

Those angry old men who've been pounding U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder for endorsing health reform legislation are coming back in a $2 million ad campaign from the 60 Plus Association against U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln and other senators who deigned to allow debate on health legislation. It'll promote the falsehood that Medicare coverage is jeopardized by health reform.

Just so you'll know: The 60 Plus Association is a front group for the pharmaceutical industry, has ties to a right-wing direct mail out fit, finances Republican candidates and is otherwise a steaming sack of sleaze.
