LAKEWOOD, Colorado — Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign launched a Medicare offensive Tuesday against President Barack Obama, a day after the candidate muddled his stance on reforming the entitlement program in Florida.
A new television ad is targeted at seniors and attacks Obama for “cutting $716 billion dollars from Medicare.
“So now the money you paid for your guaranteed healthcare is going to a massive new government program that’s not for you,” the narrator says.
“The message here is that we’re on offense on Medicare,” said a Romney aide. “This is a debate we invite. There is only one candidate in this race who has raided over $700 billion from medicare to set up a new entitlement we can’t afford and is making it for businesses —especially smaller businesses to create jobs.”
The aide would not reveal the size and location of the buy.
