New DCCC TV Ad: Rothfus Would Force Seniors to Pay $6,400 More


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today launched its third Independent Expenditure campaign TV ad hitting Keith Rothfus (PA-12) for praising a plan that would end Medicare and force seniors to pay $6,400 more per year while giving tax breaks to millionaires like himself.  Western Pennsylvanians know that seniors can’t afford Rothfus’ plan that just looks out for the rich. The DCCC ad began running today.


Script of DCCC IE AD “$6,400”:
Person 1:        I’m gonna have to work til I’m probably on my deathbed.

Voiceover:      Millionaire Keith Rothfus praised a plan that would end Medicare, forcing seniors to pay sixty-four hundred dollars more a year for health care...

Person 2:        Just exactly where does Mr. Rothfus think we are going to get this $6400?

Person 3:        You’ve paid into it, you’ve earned it, nobody should have the right to take that away from you.  

Voiceover:      ...while giving tax breaks to millionaires like himself.

Person 4:        That’s a no no!

Person 5:        He can’t do that!

Person 6:        He’s looking out for the rich.

Person 3:        You’ve got no business sticking your hand in my pocket and taking it.
