"Chris Gibson, one of the crowd ... the crowd that wants to end Medicare," a voice-over says.
But Republicans won't let that happen easily. National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Nat Sillin put out a statement in response to the ad accusing the Democrats of distracting from facts.
“Facts are facts, Julian Schreibman is the only candidate in this race who supports cutting $700 billion from Medicare. He’s already been called out for fear mongering and offering no plan of his own to save Medicare — so it’s unsurprising they are peddling more of the same distractions and distortions to hide from the facts," Sillin said, referencing an Albany Times-Union piece that accused the Democratic candidate of engaging in scare-tactics in the Medicare debate.
