    by half.  The geezers will fall for it as always and be even grumpier and send checks.  There should be a law against the false advertising the new republicans do to their base.  Oh well, with each hearse parked at the back door, we gain one more vote to shutdown the new republican machine.

    •  Call it what it is: a hoax. (0+ / 0-)

      The word is HOAX.

      They attach slogans and lies and slanders. But the prime asset they're constructing is a hoax. As phony as Piltdown Man or a set of Hitler diaries.

      That's how the Ad Biz does its work. Keep it simple and sell it:

      "Democrats are cutting your Medicare."

      Now, kiddos, where's the weak point of this hoax? Surely not just saying that Republicans voted for the same plan.

      And the oddball notion of "core" Medicare benefits don't sound right.

      The prime slogan tells them that Democrats are taking money from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. You leave that standing and anything else you say is useless.

      So... how you tackle 'em ??? Show me something that works.
