Is America More Beautiful Without Medicare? Ask Grandma! Whoops! Too Late!
Poor, Poor Grandma!
The Agenda Project Has Angered The GOP!
The Agenda Project has come up with a new ad that demonstrates quite effectively what will happen to grandma if the GOP is successful in destroying Medicare in America! Fox News and countless other GOP supporters are unhappy with the ad. They believe that the Agenda Project has gone too far. Way too far! The ad is probably the most creative political piece I have seen in quite some time. Just because the man in the suit slightly resembles Paul Ryan, just because the ad correctly defines the GOP Medicare philosophy, just because... The GOP is angry! The video is being called the Mediscare ad and the Agenda Project is loudly defending it because it tells the truth about the GOP plan to dismantle Medicare as we know it. That is the thing about great advertising! It hits all the right buttons!
If Paul Ryan doesn't like it, he should defend his plan. He should explain how his plan for Medicare will be better for seniors of the future. The GOP miscalculated this time. If anyone has gone too far, it is the GOP. They assumed, incorrectly, that they could silence those 55 or older, by promising them that Medicare will not change for them. The new plan will only destroy Medicare for those under 55. Ryan and the GOP thought the old divide and conquer idea would work in this case. They were wrong.
Even though the GOP's current behavior suggests that they are backing away from Ryan, do not believe it for a minute. They have no intention of backing down. Case in point: After Newt Gingrich appeared on Meet The Press Sunday morning, 05/15/2011, and said that Ryan's plan was radical change and right wing social engineering, the GOP and all of their backers, came down on Newt with both barrels. Newt apologized to Ryan everyway he could. Why would Gingrich have to apologize if the GOP had plans to back down? Their intentions are clear. The ad from the Agenda Project doesn't go too far. It is the Ryan plan that is outrageous! It is the Ryan plan that goes too far! And now, surpise, surprise, Gingrich is in full support, in lockstep with every other Republican. Don't forget! Every Republican member of the House voted to support the killing of Medicare! They will not back down.
Upon checking several conservative websites, most had comments from those who had seen the Mediscare ad. One, on Michelle Malkin's site, posted an entry that stated:

"Ms. Payne, the one responsible for the ad was interviewed on Fox today…I just wanted to biotch-slap the smugness off her face! Wouldn’t give and inch, even when shown how faulty her position was…and, repeatedly mentioned “her good friend” Rev. Jim Wallis, the socialist, as one who has the moral authority on the healthcare issue.
They. Make. Me. Sick! (She said she preferred elected officials/appointed officials to make healthcare decisions, instead of the ”profit-motivated" private sector businesses.) Pure socialism."
Actually, right_on, you are the one who just got 'biotch-slapped'!
F*ck Tea! By the Agenda Project! This One Is For Fay and Terry!
Not The First Time! Erica Payne Is Used To The GOP Hate!
The Agenda Project and its editor-in-chief, Erica Payne, are not new to hatred from the right. She seems to revel in it! It fits her well! She appears on Fox News and never backs off! Maybe that is why they hate her so much!
The F*ck Tea! video, appearing to the right of this section, was another Agenda Project video that hit nerves throughout the community of right wing voters. The tune is so catchy that you will be singing along with it in no time! The video depicts the Tea Party in a not so favorable, albeit, accurate light.
Just last week, I received a very nice invitation. It simply said,
"Jill, join our Tea Party. We are bringing the real hope and change to America."
If I had seen the video before deleting the invitation from my email, I would have sent back a polite 'No Thank you' and attached the video. I have instead joined the Agenda Project! I just cannot resist such creativity.
Enough of the writing! The videos are the highlight of this article!
Erica Payne, Founder Of The Agenda Project
History Of The Agenda Project
The Agenda Project was designed to unite progressives so that they could more efficiently network and promote their common causes. By bringing together academics, philanthropists, experts, activists, and other like-minded individuals and groups, organizing can become a more united and coordinated effort to affect positive change.
For years, the GOP has networked. They have built a vast propaganda empire, not little by little, but by vociferously uniting to promote their common causes. The Agenda Project, under the leadership of Erica Payne, is clearly attempting the same thing, just on the other side. Unity builds strength. It also creates a dynamic method of vocalizing, teaching and influencing. Not one by one, but coming from a place of strength and sheer numbers.
Erica Payne is also the founder of the Tessaract Group, a consulting firm that provides strategy and communications expertise. Her clients include the Brennan Center for Justice. Her resume is extensive. Listen to her on You Tube. She has had many conversations with Fox News. This is one spunky lady who doesn't back away from a fight. She will run head first right into the Lion's Den at Fox, because she comes armed with the truth!
The two ads featured here have reached thousands and thousands of people. The goal: Millions!
