American Action Network Launches TV Ad Campaign Urging Democrats To Choose Tax Cuts Over Pelosi

Targeted ads to air in seven congressional districts nationwide

WASHINGTON – American Action Network’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative (MCGI) today announced the launch of a television advertising campaign urging members of Congress to stand with working families in need of tax relief. The district-specific ads aimed at Democrats highlight the choice members face between tax cuts for the middle class or the failed status quo of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. View the list of districts targeted here.

“Across America, working families are in desperate need of tax reform that increases take-home pay, creates jobs, and strengthens our economy,” said AAN Executive Director Corry Bliss. “It’s not surprising that Nancy Pelosi and her allies in Congress are trying to jeopardize reforms that would put an extra $1,200 into the pockets of middle-class families. We’re asking these members to make the choice to help middle-class families over helping Pelosi.”

The television ad campaign is part of the Middle-Class Growth Initiative (MCGI), a special project of American Action Network launched in August to advocate for the passage of meaningful tax reform legislation. The multi-pronged effort, now totaling $20 million in expenditures, includes advertising on television, radio, direct mail, and mobile billboards in over 50 congressional districts nationwide.

SCRIPT 

ANNCR: It’s not a tough choice:

Support middle-class tax cuts, a simpler tax code,

and close loopholes so everyone pays their fair share…

… Or support Nancy Pelosi,

with her record of massive tax hikes and trillions in new debt.

NANCY PELOSI: “ … I think I’m worth the trouble, quite frankly …”

ANNCR: $1,200 in tax cuts for a typical family, or Pelosi?

NANCY PELOSI: “ … I think I’m worth the trouble, quite frankly …”

ANNCR: It’s not a tough choice. 

Tell [MEMBER OF CONGRESS]: Support middle-class tax cuts…

… Not Nancy Pelosi.
