EAU CLAIRE, WISC. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched new television and web ads that highlight Rep. Ron Kind’s record while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The organization will spend more than $540,000 on issue ads in Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District.

“Washington liberals like Rep. Ron Kind aren’t listening to Wisconsin 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 we needed him to vote against ObamaCare, he voted for it.  Now, we are taking our voices to the ballot box and placing our votes for someone Wisconsin seniors can rely on.”

Featuring voices from the district, the 30-second ad will begin airing on September 15.  A full transcript of the television ad can be found below or a video of the ad can be found by clicking here.
