Wisconsin Recall Ad: ‘Republicans Are Hurting Everyone’ (Video)
March 29, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—With the Democratic campaign in Wisconsin to recall eight state senate Republican lawmakers gaining momentum, progressive groups are out with an awesome new ad, with plans for a large media buy. The ad highlights public workers who will suffer under Gov. Scott Walker’s union-busting law that is now being fought in the courts. The words of a student in the ad perfectly encapsulates the lawlessness of Walker’s administration and his assault on workers and the middle class. “The Republicans are hurting everyone,” she says. Well, except for their corporate benefactors and the wealthiest one percent of Americans.
The spot was funded by the liberal groups Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America.
A corrections officer in the ad, says “As a Republican my entire life I am appalled at what Scott Walker and the Republicans did.” “This hurts my family. It’s about my kids in school.”
And a woman is shown, saying “Republicans have declared war on the middle class and with this recall campaign we are fighting back and we are going to win.”
Democrats just need to successfully recall three Republican state senators to retake the majority, and provide a check on the Walker administration’s naked power grab and disdain for the working people of Wisconsin.
