Ad Slams GOP For Life-Threatening Budget Cuts

It's about time we started hitting hard with our own ads.

This is exactly the kind of ad I like to see. Put responsibility right on the heads of those most deserving.

TPM:

The one minute ad, called "Republican Cuts Kill," splices grueling images of body bags and workers in hazmat suits with footage of top Republicans like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and House Speaker John Boehner (OH) calling for spending cuts. It also features 2014 Republican Senate candidates Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Pat Roberts of Kansas.

The spot was produced by the Agenda Project Action Fund, the same progressive group that has made controversial anti-Republican ads such as "Granny Off the Cliff." The group's spokeswoman, Erica Payne, said Monday the ad would air in Kentucky, North Carolina, South Dakota and Kansas — all of which feature competitive Senate races that could swing the majority.

Payne told TPM the group would take out a "low six figure buy in Kentucky – the others states are being decided now."

Good, not just because it will carry a political punch, but because it's all true.
