Greg Sargent catches this new ad from the National Republican Congressional Committee accusing Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA) of voting for “the most extreme plan” on Medicare. “Capps voted for the plan the media says would decimate Medicare,” the ad says. “Independent experts say Capps’ Medicare plan will cut Medicare benefits by 17 percent immediately — on top of the $500 billion Capps cut from Medicare last year.” None of this is true, of course.
