SEIU DVD Exposes How McCain 'Care' Leaves Seniors Behind
Date:10/8/2008

"The Facts About John McCain's Health Care Plan" a Blockbuster in Swing States

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 250,000 copies of the DVD "The Facts about John McCain's Health Care Plan" have been put in the hands of the nation's seniors in recent weeks, courtesy of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The DVD reveals John McCain's shameful record on senior health care, including:

-- Voting against helping seniors afford the prescription drugs they need,

-- Cutting funding for the senior safety nets like Medicare and Medicaid,

and

-- Designing a plan that would deny coverage for pre-existing conditions.

Working with the Alliance for Retired Americans, SEIU distributed the 13-minute DVD produced by Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films in a number of unique ways:

-- SEIU's Americans for Health Care chapters went door-to-door to give

seniors the DVD and talk with them about the candidates' health

care plans.

-- SEIU retiree chapters and Alliance for Retired Americans coalitions

hosted house parties for friends and family to view the DVD and discuss

the election.

-- SEIU mailed the DVD to targeted swing-voting senior households across

the country. Seniors also received calls urging them to consider health

care when voting from Cathy Stoddart, a registered nurse from Mingo

Junction, Ohio, who is featured in the film.

"With America's economy in crisis, employment rates skyrocketing, home foreclosures rising and retirement savings dropping, the last thing seniors need is to have their health care safety net put in jeopardy," said SEIU Secretary-Treasure Anna Burger. "John McCain is trying to pull the old Washington bait and switch: promise voters tax credits to pay for health care before the election while he hides the massive tax increases and budget cuts he is planning to get it done."

A two-minute trailer of the film can be seen here:
