Democrats, Republicans spend nearly $50 million on TV ads that repeat old, scary Medicare claims.
A new ad from Republican Montana Senate candidate Steve Daines falsely accuses his Democratic opponent, Sen. John Walsh, of wanting to privatize Social Security. And both candidates trade jabs in competing TV ads on Medicare.
A TV ad in Montana says Rep. Steve Daines — who opposes abortion rights — “proposed making women criminals for having an abortion.” But the bill that the ad cites expressly bars “the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child.”
Montana Senate candidates Steve Daines and John Walsh accuse each other in TV ads of helping to ship American jobs to China, but both sides fail to support their exaggerated claims.
Q: Did the White House "orchestrate" a recent town hall meeting to make it appear that Montana is "just crazy for Obama and government health care"?
A: A chain e-mail that makes that claim isn’t supported by the record. Some of what it says is false.
