The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a new video. Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) is expected to look after her own interests this week, at the expense of the middle class and the federal budget deficit:

Narrator: Good news, Republicans want to cut your taxes. Not you. You. And you deserve a break. After all, these things are expensive. So Republicans want to give you, the millionaire, another tax break. All while charging seniors six thousand dollars more for Medicare. This guy, her? They don’t need it. They’ll just buy groceries and pay the mortgage. But you? You’re going places. And Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler will knock down anyone in your way.

[Tell Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler

Stop putting millionaires over the middle class]

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.

The DCCC statement which was attached to the video:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) continues on offense, releasing new online ads – titled “The Millionaires” – to expose twenty-three Republican Members of Congress who are about to vote for another tax cut for millionaires at the expense of the middle class and seniors. The new advertising begins today in the districts of twenty-three vulnerable House Republicans as part of the DCCC’s “Drive for 25” campaign to win the Majority.

With 100 days until Election Day, House Republicans will vote this week to give people making more than $1 million a year another $130,000 tax break, according to the Tax Policy Center, and once again double down on their failed priorities instead of protecting the middle class and seniors. This past weekend, the DCCC held “Middle Class First” grassroots events in 19 congressional districts to expose Republicans’ plans to put millionaires over the middle class.

“Democrats are on offense again as House Republicans vote this week to protect tax breaks for millionaires instead of strengthening the middle class,” said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel. “Under House Republicans’ top-down economics, millionaires, corporations that outsource jobs, Big Oil and special interests get a $130,000 tax break which we can’t afford. Democrats are holding Republicans accountable for their misplaced priorities and the heat is on House Republicans for putting millionaires and special interests first, and the middle class and seniors last.”

Uh, yep.
