60 Plus Launches New Ad, Challenges Bishop’s Record

NEW YORK – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, recently launched a new television ad in New York’s 1st Congressional District that challenges Rep. Tim Bishop’s record.

“Washington betrayed New York’s seniors,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association.  “The new health legislation cuts $500 billion from Medicare.  We have already seen the cancelation of one Medicare Advantage program that affected 22,000 seniors as a result of the cut, and I fear this is just the first of many. Seniors don’t know why Rep. Bishop voted against seniors on health care reform, but they know exactly why they will be voting against Rep. Bishop this November.”

This is the second in a series of ads in New York’s 1st Congressional District that 60 Plus has released.  A full transcript of the television ad can be found below or a video of the ad can be found by clicking here .


We warned Tim Bishop not to do it… Not to vote for a big government health care bill… One that costs a trillion dollars… Raises taxes… And cuts $500 billion from Medicare… But Tim Bishop sided with Nancy Pelosi – and did it anyway.  We may never know why Bishop supported Pelosi over our seniors… But this November, when you vote against Tim Bishop – he’ll know exactly the reason why.
