DCCC Releases “Retire” TV Ad Exposing Congressman Dan Lungren For Looking Out for Himself


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching its first Independent Expenditure campaign TV ad exposing Republican Congressman Dan Lungren (CA-07) as a career politician who looks out for himself in office rather than California’s seniors. Not only does Congressman Lungren collect a state pension, but he voted for a taxpayer funded gold-plated health care plan for himself. But when it came to fighting for California seniors’ retirement, Congressman Lungren voted to raise the Social Security retirement age and supported Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget that essentially ends Medicare. The ad begins airing today.

Script of  DCCC IE Ad Retire” CA-07

Dan Lungren has a plan for retirement.
Where he gives career politicians like himself a gold-plated health plan
…and collects a guaranteed pension for life.
But for us?
Lungren voted to raise the retirement age for Social Security.
And voted for a bill that would essentially end Medicare.
Costing seniors more than six thousand dollars a year.
Plan to retire someday? Better retire Dan Lungren.
