TALLAHASSEE, FLA.The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new ad regarding Rep. Allen Boyd’s record.

“Rep. Boyd decided to ignore the voices of his constituents when he voted for the health care overhaul,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association.  ”Congress’s massive overhaul of the health care system cut $500 billion from Medicare, hurting the quality of care for seniors.  Many seniors don’t know why Rep. Boyd ignored their concerns, but they completely understand why they will be voting against him this November.”

60 Plus began the ad campaign in the district on September 9.  This is the second in a series of ads the organization has released in regards to Boyd’s record.

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