DCCC billboards hit Republicans on Ryan budget in 14 states– As House Republicans drive around their districts during the April recess, 14 of them will see billboards attacking them on Medicare and tax cuts for millionaires, courtesy of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). The billboards will remain up for all of April, and target Republicans facing difficult reelection campaigns. GOP Reps. Charlie Bass (N.H.), Sean Duffy (Wis.) and Steve King (Iowa) are on the list, as are Dan Lungren (Calif.) and Steve Southerland (Fla.). The billboards show a concerned-looking elderly man next to the House member’s name and the phrase “protecting millionaires instead of Medicare.” Voters are directed to a website,www.millionairesovermedicare.com, where a video shows footage of the targeted Republicans. In the video, a banner pops up as each Republican is speaking to say that he “voted to end Medicare.” The fine print sources the 2011 roll call vote for House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget proposal.
Protesting a DCCC fundraiser does nothing to “change the conversation” when those in attendance are already discussing the things you want them to discuss.
Jobs. Taxing the rich and shameless. Financial regulations.
Nancy Pelosi even presided over the most sweeping regulation of Wall Street in decades while she was Speaker of the House, which President Obama later signed into law.
Regardless if you feel that both parties are the same — much of the support coming to the Occupy movement from ‘average’ working and middle class people would have been from which voting block, do ya think: Democrats or Republicans? Union members: Democrats or Republicans? Want tax increases only on the wealthy so spending cuts for the rest of us don’t need to be as deep: Democrats or Republicans? Are they planning to occupy the NRCC?
We’re only hours out from tonight’s critical Federal Election Commission reporting deadline.
After House Republicans turned a blind eye to the nationwide constituent backlash over their votes to end Medicare while protecting tax cuts for billionaires and Big Oil, Congress is set to return to Washington next week.
It’s long past time for the House Republicans to put aside their right-wing ideological agenda and work on America’s top priority: creating jobs and growing our economy.
With your generous support we’ll show that Republicans will not get away with selling out our seniors and the middle class. Stand with me in our aggressive effort to hold Republicans accountable for their extreme agenda and help us win back our House Majority.
