Gephardt for President, Inc.

30-second ad run in Iowa mid-Jan. 2004.

Morris & Carrick

[Sound] Male Announcer: How much do you really know about Howard Dean?

Did you know Howard Dean called Medicare one of the worst federal programs ever?

Did you know he supported the Republican plan to cut Medicare by $270 billion?

And did you know Howard Dean supported cutting Social Security retirement benefits to balance the budget?

Dick Gephardt: I will be a president who will fight to protect Medicare and Social Security.

(voiceover): I'm Dick Gephardt.  That's why I approved this message.

Notes and Observations:  A straight negative ad; it didn't help Gephardt.
