ORLANDO, FLA. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched new television and web ads in Florida’s 8th and 24th Congressional Districts.  The organization will spend nearly $1 million in the Orlando area on issue ads that spotlight Reps. Alan Grayson and Suzanne Kosmas’s records.

“It is time for Washington to listen to their constituents,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of 60 Plus.  ”Legislators, like Reps. Grayson and Kosmas, have been so consumed by the talking points spewing from Speaker Pelosi that they seem to have forgotten to tune into the concerns of those who put them in office.  Florida seniors said ‘no’ to ObamaCare and the so-called stimulus package, but Reps. Grayson and Kosmas said ‘aye’ nonetheless.  They might not have listened before, but when seniors head to the ballot box this November, you can be sure they will hear the message.”

Featuring the voices of concerned residents of Florida’s 8th and 24th Congressional Districts, the 30-second TV ad will air across the two districts beginning on September 9.

A full transcript of the television ad can be found below or a video of the ad can be found by clicking here.


- TRANSCRIPT -


FLORIDIAN: Alan Grayson and Suzanne Kosmas are putting Nancy Pelosi’s liberal agenda ahead of Florida’s seniors.

FLORIDIAN: They supported Pelosi’s health care bill, which cuts $500 billion from Medicare…

FLORIDA COUPLE: We thought she was looking out for us, but Kosmas switched her vote at the last minute.

FLORIDIAN: And Grayson did some nasty name-calling when people disagreed with him.

FLORIDIAN: They betrayed the trust of Florida’s seniors.  This November…

SEVERAL FLORIDIANS: We’ll remember.

ANNOUNCER: Sixty Plus Association is responsible for the content of this advertising.

    We have got to get rid of Grayson. He is an embarrassment to all residents of our district and especially so to to the seniors. He was an opportunist who rode in on the coat tails of Obama and we must get a real person into the job. Dan Webster is that man.

    Folks,
    A token of my appreciation for the crisp anti-Grayson & anti-Kosmas political ad will be contributed in order for 60-Plus to buy more TV & Radio time. Thanks for the initiative!
    Michael Berry was speaking to his Texas Radio audience as recorded in the below You-Tube link, but much of the same message applies to us Floridians, so 60-Plus may want to “mine it for some nuggets”. The Congressional players are different, but there are many National commonalities in a Socialist “tax & spend” philosophy, so we have to light a blaze under the cheeks of our fellow voters and remind them to FIRE Allen Boyd (2), Corine Brown (3), Kathy Castor (11), Ted Deutch (19), Alan Grayson (8), Alcee Hastings (23), Ron Klein (22), Suzanne Kosmas (24), and lastly but not least, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (20). None are from my 15th voting District, but I plan to do what I can to help all Central-Florida Conservatives between now and the “Liberal collective-pink-slip day” in November.

    Conversely, we need to HIRE Marco Rubio as one of our two Senators. Hiring the political new-comer Rick Scott as our next Governor – unfortunately, baggage & all – will be much more difficult.
