The Administration has offi- cially refused this request, declaring HHS would not wait for the GAO's determi- nation and, instead, will colleagues are concerned about both the Medicare tel- evision and radio advertise- ments and the mass mailing because the apparent intent is to boost the Bush reelec- tion effort. Additionally, the advertising firm that HHS paid to purchase broadcast time tbr the Medicare TV ads also works for the Bush reelection campaign.
