Notes: From the press release...

Priorities USA Action today released a new ad about the trail of broken promises Mitt Romney left behind in his business career, and a warning about the promises he's making right now to the American people.  

“Same Promises” highlights the stories of people who represent the thousands of middle class workers who lost their jobs, their pensions and their health benefits after Romney and his firm broke promises and bankrupted companies. Today, Mitt Romney promises to help the middle class but his agenda would hurt hardworking families by turning Medicare into a voucher program, cutting education and raising taxes on the middle class.

The ad is part of a renewed multi-million dollar effort on television and online to educate voters about Mitt Romney’s business record in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. A series of related ads ran in key battleground states this summer and can be viewed at www.RealRomneyRecord.com.

“Mitt Romney is making promises to the American people in the same way he made promises to the thousands of middle class workers whose lives were devastated by his business decisions,” said Bill Burton, senior strategist at Priorities USA Action. “If Romney claims his business experience is the reason he should be elected president, it's important that voters know the impact that experience already had on thousands of middle class families.”
