Candidate Vital Signs: NH for Health Care calls on Giuliani to remove misleading ad
New Hampshire for Health Care, along with thousands of Health Care Voters across the state, is calling on Mayor Giuliani to remove a new radio ad released last week that contains inaccurate public health statistics. Health Care Voters are asking Giuliani to stop resorting to scare tactics and misinformation on an issue of such monumental importance in the election.
Mayor Giuliani advertises that the chance of surviving prostate cancer in England is 44%, under what he terms socialized medicine, but information has come forward that the true number is over 74%. That is a difference of 30%, and a very misleading statement to present to New Hampshire voters. The Giuliani campaign has indicated that it will continue to air the radio ad despite the erroneous statistics; Health Care Voters are attending Giuliani’s public appearances in NH this week, circulating a flyer about the misleading ad and urging people to question Mayor Giuliani about it.
