Daisy at 50 [View all]



Forty-eight years ago, 2 year old Monique Corzilius aka Daisy was featured in an ad reminding us that life is too precious to waste. Monique Corzilius is now 50 years old. If Romney/Ryan win this election, she will never get Medicare. Instead, when she reaches 65 she will be given a voucher and told to purchase insurance from an industry which refuses to insure the elderly and sick. "Daisy" is in just as much danger now as she was in 1964. Unless Americans read the small print, they may go to the polls convinced that Romney is the same as Obama---except white----not realizing that he, his VP and his party have vowed to eliminate the Medicare program that LBJ built to keep the nation's elderly from sinking into poverty due illness and aging.

If "Daisy" was worth saving in 1964, she is worth saving now.



Watch the original ad here:

"These are the stakes. We must either love each other, or we must die" LBJ
