NEW YORKThe 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched new television and web ads in New York’s 1st Congressional District, targeting Rep. Tim Bishop’s record while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Washington liberals like Rep. Tim Bishop aren’t listening to New York 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 many seniors were hoping to pass to their children. When the Greatest Generation needed Rep. Bishop to vote against ObamaCare, he voted for it.  Now, seniors are taking their voices to the ballot box and placing their votes for someone New York can rely on.”

The 30-second television ad will air throughout the district beginning on September 16.  A full transcript of the television ad can be found below or a video of the ad can be found by clicking here .
