Rick Santorum for President

"Your Side" +
:30 ad run starting Feb. 24, 2012 in MI.

[Music] Male Announcer: Who's on the side of Michigan workers?

Not Romney.  He supported the Wall Street bailouts while turning his back on Michigan workers.  But Rick Santorum's Made in the U.S.A. plan changes everything. 

It cuts taxes for Michigan manufacturers to zero so we can bring back American jobs from overseas.

It also cuts income taxes for all workers and cuts $5 trillion in spending over five years, balancing the federal budget.

Rick Santorum.  He's fighting for us.

Santorum: I'm Rick Santorum and I approve this message.

Notes: The very similar ad "Made in the U.S.A." from the day before seems to be a precursor to this ad.  (Instead of the line about cutting spending and balancing the budget, that ad has a point about tripling the per child tax deduction.) 

According to the press release on "Your Side"...

The Rick Santorum for President campaign released a second new statewide advertisement in Michigan, contrasting the crony capitalist record of Mitt Romney with the free-market, Made-in-the-USA plan of Rick Santorum

Hogan Gidley, National Communications Director, said: "The differences between Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney couldn't be greater.  Mitt Romney took the unprincipled position of supporting the bailout of his friends on Wall Street while abandoning his 'hometown' of Detroit.  Rick Santorum is a principled conservative that believes that free-markets and free-people are what grows our economy.  Rick's Made-in-the-USA plan will revive areas like Michigan hardest hit by the Obama Administration's encroachment on freedom."
