Television Ads Target Republicans Over Anti-Middle Class Tax Vote
Huffington Post - August 6, 2012
Republicans and Democrats in Congress very deliberately made their tax arguments before going on a six-week break last week, with Democrats voting to end the Bush-era tax cuts on income above $250,000, and the GOP voting to keep that cut while ending a slew of middle class breaks.
The votes set up clear arguments for voters to choose between, with Democrats saying they're for the middle class, and Republicans saying they're for everybody, especially the "job creators."
And now, here come the ads, with the Democratic-affiliated AFSCME and Americans United for Change rolling out a national, two-day $250,000 buy that also targets five specific Republicans.
