It would appear that Julian Schreibman, the Democrat candidate for Congressman, is either out of ideas, desperate, or just following the "Mediscare" play book. Perhaps it is all three.
Over the last 4 days, I have received fliers at my home from or on behalf of the Schreibman campaign containing a massive lie. The ads accuse Congressman Gibson of "gutting Medicare" and "ending Medicare as we know it". Now, there is a front page story in the Daily Freeman.
This is of course the lie liberal Democrats have been spreading about Paul Ryan and is plan to save Medicare.
The Albany Times Union, which is a very strong Democrat paper, recently ran an article stating that Julian Schreibman is playing "Mediscare politics". (http://bit.ly/RgFUxB). When a Democrat rag like the Times Union says that about a Democrat or frankly says anything negative about a Democrat, it is saying something.
It should also be noted that PolitiFact examined the claims of Schreibman and his fellow left wingers that the Romney-Ryan plan would "end Medicare as we know it". These non-partisan fact checkers concluded that the claim was the "Lie of the Year".
Imagine that. Schreibman is continuing to spread the "lie of the year". That speaks volumes about his credibility.
What is next? Will Schreibman and his supporters run an ad depicting Congressman Gibson throwing an old lady in a wheelchair over a cliff like the national democrats did to Paul Ryan?
Here's an idea for Mr. Schreibman. Try to campaign honestly and stop spreading the "lie of the year". Stop trying to scare seniors and offer some real plans for the future. If you do not support the Ryan-Romney plan, then what is your plan to keep Medicare solvent? Finally, stop sending lying and negative attack ads to my home and the homes of other voters.
In German, "Schreibman" means writing man. Perhaps we should refer to him as "Schreibliegen" which means writing lies.
