DCCC Continues On Offense, Launches 11 New TV Ads
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee continues on offense launching 11 new Independent Expenditure TV ads throughout this past week. With 60 days left to Election Day Democrats are aggressively holding Republicans accountable for their wrong priorities. The majority of these ads focus on Republicans who support ending Medicare while giving tax breaks to millionaires or companies shipping jobs overseas at the expense of seniors and the middle class.
In the past 3 weeks the DCCC’s Independent Expenditure has released ads in 15 districts.
AZ-01: Republican Candidate Jonathan Paton. “Payday.” Paton is a corporate lobbyist who worked for the predatory payday loan industry and allowed the gouging of everyday citizens.
CA-10: Congressman Jeff Denham. “Hurting Us in Washington.” Congressman Denham isn’t looking out for Valley families. He took $20,000 in pay raises as a state senator and voted to end Medicare in Congress.
CA-52: Congressman Brian Bilbray. “Not Working for You.” Lobbyist Brian Bilbray isn’t looking out middle class families. Instead Congressman Bilbray took campaign cash from Big Oil and voted to end Medicare.
IL-12: Republican Candidate Jason Plummer. “Worth.” Plummer praised a plan to end Medicare in order to give more tax breaks to millionaires like himself.
IL-17: Congressman Bobby Schilling. “One of Them.” Congressman Schilling has gone Washington, voting to end Medicare and keep tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.
NY-19: Congressman Chris Gibson. “One of the Crowd.” Congressman Gibson joined Washington Republicans in voting to end Medicare, while giving millionaires more tax breaks.
NY-24: Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle. “Outrageous.” Congresswoman Buerkle voted to end Medicare while giving millionaires more tax breaks.
OH-06: Congressman Bill Johnson. “Left Behind.” Congressman Johnson voted to protect tax breaks for companies shipping jobs overseas after he and his company profited off of avoiding paying taxes.
OH-16: Congressman Jim Renacci. “In Time.” Congressman Renacci voted against critical funding for life saving breast and cervical cancer screenings and instead voted to give himself perks like taxpayer-funded health care for life.
PA-12: Republican Candidate Keith Rothfus. “Shanghai.” Rothfus wants to protect tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas instead of focusing on creating jobs in western Pennsylvania.
TX-23: Congressman Quico Canseco. “Can't Shoot Straight.” Congressman Canseco is out for himself, hit with liens, lost his business license for breaking state laws and accused of stealing from clients.
