A new “issue advocacy” group is running an ad against U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson for supporting the health care law. Seen this morning on CBS in Tampa, it’s the latest example of outside spending that threatens Nelson’s fundraising advantage over his chief rival, U.S. Rep. Connie Mack.
The American Commitment repeats the claim that Nelson was the “deciding vote,” which PolitiFact found Mostly False. And it reprises an often-used $500 billion “cut” from Medicare attack. There are no cuts; rather the law slows Medicare spending, which is something Republicans want. Plus it says the costs of the law have “doubled” from what was promised. That, too, is false.
