Vilsack Campaign Asks Stations To Pull False GOP Ads

It is about time someone started confronting the GOP lies that the media repeats and profits from with no accountability. We found this on

Christie Vilsack’s campaign is requesting all television stations to pull the National Republican Congressional Committee’s newest false and misleading advertisement involving her position on The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and its provisions.

In a letter to television stations the campaign stated that the National Republican Congressional Committee’s advertisement is false and misleading because it claims that Vilsack supports ”Keeping Obamacare … and $700 billion in Medicare cuts.”

Attorneys for Vilsack’s campaign wrote that the statement isn’t true because the act doesn’t cut Medicare which they back up with several news articles and stated that it fails to mention that she supports a significant provision of the Affordable Care Act including the individual mandate.

Here is the link to the full story and the letter from Vilsack’s attorneys.

    Did you see this?

    From today’s Wall Street Journal:

    [I]n Iowa, Democrats have requested roughly 100,000 ballots, compared with 16,073 ballots requested by Republicans.

    “I see the early vote numbers, and I grimace a little bit,” said Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Iowa Republican Party and editor of a popular blog, The Iowa Republican. “It feels like an Obama state….The president has been more accessible to voters than Romney and Ryan.”

    This is great news! What happened to the GOP?
