The DCCC is responsible for the content of this advertising, not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.The ad is in response to Young voting against H R 3162 to extend and improve the children's health insurance program, to improve beneficiary protections under the Medicare, Medicaid, and the CHIP program.
