Congressman Paul Ryan remains on the ballot in his Wisconsin congressional district. As a result, his congressional campaign is still humming along releasing this new ad earlier today. The ad takes on the issue of health care. In it, Ryan says the individual should be in charge of their own health, not “government or insurance bureaucrats.”
The inclusion of “government” bureaucrats is a clear dig at the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare). The ad, however, ignores the elephant in the room. It was, after all, Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care plan (a.k.a. RomneyCare) that served as a template for the president’s health care law.
Now that he’s on the Republican ticket with Mitt Romney, Ryan is quite unlikely to make a direct attack on RomneyCare. But he’s made his feelings on RomneyCare all too clear in the past.
One more thing… we also happened to notice a stunning lack of diversity in this video.
