Video: American icon deceives seniors about Medicare

posted at 7:52 pm on August 2, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via John McCormack, a pep talk for seniors before the midterms from Sheriff Andy Matlock in case any of them are thinking that that newfangled health-care law might cause problems with their benefits down the line. I don’t mind the feds hiring famous actors to push their propaganda — maybe Obama’s planning to sign Schwarzenegger to start doing ads on Afghanistan? — but can we at least try to avoid misleading the target audience? Read this FactCheck.org analysis of the Griffith ad. “Guaranteed benefits” aren’t always guaranteed benefits.

Exit question: The elderly and even the middle-aged will recognize this guy right away, but what about those fresh-faced twentysomethings who actually have to pay for the product he’s pushing here? Note to Obama: There was someone available who could have reached all three groups. Saving her for the Social Security propaganda, maybe?
