Congressman Steve King - TV Ad Screenshot

(AMES) – Rep. Steve King (R-Kiron) today released his fourth television advertisement, titled “Truth.” The 30-second advertisement highlights the truth about Medicare – ObamaCare cuts it by $716 billion, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

“The left, in a desperate attempt to scare seniors, is advancing lies regarding Medicare, but the truth is ObamaCare is the only law cutting seniors’ care to the tune of $716 billion,” said King. “Christie Vilsack supports Obamacare, but I am the nation’s leading opponent of ObamaCare because it infringes on our unique American liberty, guts Medicare, costs Americans jobs and puts a bureaucrat between seniors and their doctors.”

The advertisement will air across the 4th Congressional District.

The following is the transcript of “Truth”:

Steve King:

Strengthen Medicare? There’s one easy way. Get rid of ObamaCare.

ObamaCare cuts Medicare $716 billion dollars. It creates a board of fifteen bureaucrats to control seniors’ health decisions.

Liberals always try to scare you about Medicare. Well this time answer back and say that you know the truth.

ObamaCare has to go.

I’m Steve King and I approve this message.
