Priorities USA Action

"We the People" +
:30 ad from Sept. 8, 2012 run in CO, FL, IA, OH, VA and WI.

[Music] Male Announcer: We the people.

The middle class, who move our country forward.

Work hard.

Raise families.

And keep America strong.

But Mitt Romney's budget plan will hurt the middle class, raising taxes on the average family by up to $2,000 while giving a tax break of $250,000 to multi-millionaires.

Doesn't Mitt Romney understand?  We can't rebuild America by tearing down the middle class.

Notes: From the press release...

Priorities USA Action today released a new television ad focusing on the devastating impact Mitt Romney's tax plan would have on middle class families working hard for the American Dream. 

The ad features independent analysis from the Tax Policy Center, which concludes that the average middle class family would have to pay an average $2,000 dollars more in order to pay for a new $250,000 tax cut for multi-millionaires like Romney.

The ad is part of Priorities USA Action’s new $30 million project that focuses on how the Romney-Ryan policy proposals would hurt middle class families and undermine America economically. The 30-second spot will run on television and online in the battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin.

“Americans do not accept Mitt Romney's vision that says the middle class should bear more of the tax burden so multimillionaires can enjoy another tax cut,” said Bill Burton, senior strategist for Priorities USA action. “To move our country forward, the middle class must come first.”
