DCCC Releases 2nd TV Ad Targeting Buerkle’s Vote to Increase Taxes on Middle Class Families
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today launched an Independent Expenditure campaign TV ad hitting Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-24) on her support of Paul Ryan’s Medicare ending budget that increases taxes on middle class families by $1,400 while giving millionaires a $265,000 tax cut.
The DCCC ad began running today. A recent DCCC poll shows Dan Maffei leading Congresswoman Buerkle by 6 points, 48-42.
Script of DCCC IE AD “Only in Washington”:
Voiceover: Only in Washington would this happen.
Voiceover: Ann Marie Buerkle voted to increase taxes on middle class families by fourteen hundred dollars.
Voiceover: And where does the money go?
Voiceover: To give millionaires a two hundred sixty five thousand dollar tax cut.
Voiceover: It’s Paul Ryan’s plan … and Ann Marie Buerkle voted for it.
Voiceover: Ann Marie Buerkle would make the middle class pay more so millionaires can pay less.
Voiceover: That’s outrageous. Even in Washington.
