AAN Releases $1 Million National Ad Hitting Liberals For Calling Tax Benefits “Crumbs”

New ad targeting Nancy Pelosi will run before and after the State of the Union address

WASHINGTON – American Action Network (@AAN) will be airing a $1 million national television and digital ad this week, hitting Nancy Pelosi and her liberal allies for calling the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act “Armageddon,” and the bonuses hardworking employees are receiving “crumbs.” Additionally, the ad will air before and after the President’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

“A much-needed bonus or a $2,000 tax cut may be crumbs to Pelosi and her elite San Francisco friends, but that’s real money that matters to middle-class families – allowing them to have some much-needed peace of mind,” said Corry Bliss, AAN Executive Director. “Nancy Pelosi and her liberal allies are laughing in the faces of hardworking Americans every single time they refer to the benefits of tax reform as merely ‘crumbs.’”

Since August 2017, AAN has spent over $29 million promoting the passage of meaningful, pro-growth tax reform for the middle class.

Congress just passed historic middle-class tax cuts.

Saving $2,000 for middle-class families.

And Nancy Pelosi calls it…

NANCY PELOSI: …the worst bill in the history of the United States Congress.

ANNCR: 300,000 new jobs will be created.

PELOSI: This tax bill is Armageddon.

ANNCR: With bonuses and better benefits for millions – which Pelosi calls…

PELOSI: … crumbs that they are giving to workers…

ANNCR: Tell Nancy Pelosi: She’s wrong.

Middle-Class Tax Cuts are working.

PELOSI: …it’s so pathetic.
