Ron Paul Super PAC Ad Reinforces Candidate’s Will to Uphold Promise to Seniors

Share Article

New Revolution PAC Super Tuesday commercial shows Paul is sole candidate prepared to preserve Social Security.

If you're frightened or angry about what's happening - as well you should be, regardless of age - vote for the guy the media and all the entrenched interests are terrified of.

Among its television spots set for broadcast in targeted Super Tuesday states, Revolution PAC’s new commercial “Tea for Two” takes aim at the misconception that U.S. Rep. Ron Paul would slash social programs like Social Security. The 60-second ad was unveiled during the committee’s 12-hour webcast Saturday.

The spot’s central message is that provisions in Rep. Paul’s “Plan to Restore America” - instituting sound monetary policy, reducing overseas spending, and cutting unnecessary departments and programs - will serve to free capital and allow the federal government to fulfill its promise of Social Security to seniors.

In the commercial, two children portray and are voiced over by senior citizens. It begins:

MAN: “This national poll shows that Ron Paul is the best candidate that stacks up against Obama.”

WOMAN: “Well, Ron Paul wants to take away my Social Security, so I don’t like him.”

MAN: “He’s actually the only candidate who has a real plan to save your Social Security, not only save it but save the purchasing power of your monthly check … We need to make cuts, bring our troops home to protect our own shores and borders, and rebuild our economy. Every other Republican candidate has proposed massive spending increases, not cuts.”

A preliminary analysis by the independent Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget released Thursday confirms that Ron Paul’s plan could reduce the debt by an estimated $2.2 trillion, while his three opponents’ plans could add between $250 billion and $7 trillion of debt over the next nine years.

The spot also highlights Rep. Paul’s mass appeal, referencing the preponderance of General Election polls that show Paul besting Barack Obama as well as the thousands Paul is attracting at nearly every campaign stop nationwide.

"What the ad is saying simply,” explains Tom Woods, Revolution PAC honorary chair, “is this: If you're happy with how things have been going, vote for one of the establishment candidates. But, if you're frightened or angry about what's happening - as well you should be, regardless of age - vote for the guy the media and all the entrenched interests are terrified of."

Rep. Paul’s Social Security Preservation Act, introduced seven times since 1999 including in 2011, would safeguard the Social Security trust funds and shield them from the public debt limit.

Revolution PAC is supporting U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination and his consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising, direct mail campaigns, vote-watching initiatives and innovative Web promotions complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations are being accepted by Revolution PAC to support that effort.
