The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is on air in Alaska, with a “multi-million dollar” ad buy, hitting GOP Senate candidate Dan Sullivan on Medicaid and Social Security. The ad features Gladys Meacock, whose husband has Alzheimer’s. “Our lives are hard enough. We don’t need Dan Sullivan making them even tougher,” Meacock says.
Sullivan has promised to work to repeal ObamaCare, which has saved seniors an average of $900 a year just on prescription drugs. If the law were repealed, seniors would also lose access to a host of preventative care benefits, including mammograms and colonoscopies. Also as pointed out in the ad, Sullivan has said that he would be willing to vote on a plan that would raise the age of retirement for younger generations.
