SCRANTON, PENN. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched new television and web ads in Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District.  The organization will spend more than $450,000 in the district on issue ads that spotlight Rep. Paul Kanjorski’s record.

“Washington liberals like Rep. Paul Kanjorski aren’t listening to Pennsylvania seniors,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of 60 Plus.  “The Obama/Pelosi health care disaster cut a half trillion dollars from Medicare, threatened senior’s ability to keep their own doctors, and raised taxes on the inheritance we were hoping to pass to our children. When the Greatest Generation needed Rep. Kanjorski to vote against ObamaCare, he voted for it.  Now, seniors are taking their voices to the ballot box and placing their votes for someone Pennsylvania can rely on.”

Featuring local voices, the 30-second ad will air across the district 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 .
