DCCC Releases Ad Attacking Congressman Bill Johnson for Personally Profiting from Outsourcing Jobs
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Independent Expenditure released its first TV ad in Ohio’s 6th Congressional District exposing Congressman Bill Johnson for leaving behind Ohio workers. First as a corporate executive, Bill Johnson personally profited when his company closed U.S. manufacturing plants and avoided paying taxes on the millions they made from outsourcing when sending hundreds of jobs to China and Mexico. Then, Congressman Johnson voted to protect tax breaks for companies that send jobs overseas. The DCCC IE’s TV ad, “Left Behind,” starts running today.
Script of DCCC IE Ad “Left Behind” OH-06
Voiceover: Congressman Bill Johnson. In Washington, Johnson voted to protect tax breaks for companies shipping jobs overseas.
Not surprising. As an executive, Bill Johnson’s corporation closed American manufacturing plants and sent hundreds of jobs to Mexico and China.
They made millions sending jobs overseas, but avoided taxes on the profits.
That’s Congressman Bill Johnson: in business, in Washington … he’s out for himself.
Eastern Ohio gets left behind.
