In a new ad released by the Democratic Committee (DNC), the party accurately goes after the 11 point Republican Plan to “rescue America” championed by Florida Senator and former Governor Rick Scott that would raise taxes on half the American People and potentially sunset Social Security and Medicare after five years.

With the headline at the start of the 24 second ad that ask “What’s the GOP Agenda?” there is a television news journalist’s voice that conveys:

“Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott just released an 11-point plan to “rescue America.”

The ad then segues to an interview Fox Journalist/Host Major Garrett conducted with Senator Scott last March where Garrett stated:

“So that would raise taxes on half of Americans and potentially sunset programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Why would you propose something like that in an election year?

 It’s not a Democratic talking point, it’s in the plan.”

The ad concludes with “Can you afford the GOP Agenda?”

In a word, no.

For anyone in the alt reality world that thinks this is an ad that has twisted Mr. Garrett’s words, please click on the full interview below and start at 4:40 and see what entirety of the exchange.

If the GOP plan as championed by Senator Scott passes, the DNC states between 1.3 and 1.4 million people could lose access to Social Security and Medicare.

DNC States Communications Director Brooke Goren stated:

“Arizona seniors depend on the Medicare and Social Security benefits they’ve been paying into for decades to access life-saving care and afford basic necessities – and Republicans are putting their right to these hard-earned benefits in jeopardy. Without these crucial programs, more than 1.3 million Arizonans could stand to face higher costs, and Democrats are committed to spending every day between now and November making sure that voters know it.”

Arizona residents can not afford the GOP Agenda.

Neither can anyone else in the United States.
