Lee Terry has a new TV ad up. See it here:
And here is what the Terry camp had to say:
U.S. Rep. Lee Terry’s new TV ad calls the growing national debt a “ticking time bomb” that
needs to be defused by making big cuts to federal spending.
The thirty second ad reiterates the fact that Terry has voted 157 times to cut spending from
bills that were considered on the House floor since January 2009. Terry’s votes would reduce
federal spending by seven trillion dollars more than currently planned over the next decade, an
astounding amount of deficit reduction.
“The voters have a real choice in this race. I have a proven record of voting to cut spending.
My opponent offers the same old, tired song of more spending, more debt and a huge increase in
taxes on middle-class families,” Terry said.
Terry’s opponent is on record as supporting the failed $800 billion stimulus program and $1.7
trillion healthcare law that together add $2.5 trillion to the national debt. 1 Incredibly, he has also
called for “repeal” of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, an action that would trigger a $166 billion tax
increase next year on virtually all taxpayers.2
“Voters who I talk to want spending cut,” Terry said. “I’ve been voting to do just that. My
opponent, on the other hand, says he wants to cut the federal deficit but then turns around
and endorses policies that would spend trillions more. You can’t cut spending by increasing
spending. And, you can’t get the economy growing by hitting families with massive tax hikes.”
An average middle-class family in Omaha would have their taxes hiked by between $1,600
and $2,200 annually under the Ewing plan.3 The 2001 and 2003 revisions reduced taxes on
wage earners, families with children, small businesses and seniors who depend on dividend and
interest income for their retirement. Terry voted in the House on August 1 to extend the current
tax relief provisions.
“I am proud to have voted to continue with the current sensible tax relief. If we don’t, an
average middle-class family in Omaha will pay thousands of dollars more in taxes,” Terry said.
Terry’s ad will have a substantial airing on broadcast and cable television in the Greater Omaha
area, according to Dave Boomer, Terry’s campaign manager.
Terry continues to define John Ewing. But the thing is, Ewing should be happy. Terry is delivering his message for him: more support for the Democrats and more support for Barack Obama’s agenda.
That is what Ewing is selling.
If you want more stimuluses and more ObamaCare and more more more government, John Ewing is your guy.
Hey look! The press is carrying Bob Kerrey’s water one the carpetbagger issue…again.
Headline from the AP: Kerrey says time outside Nebraska was beneficial
Oh, geez! Well how about that! We figured Kerrey would say that his time outside Nebraska made him more or a leftist and disconnected from Nebraska.
Oh wait. Here is Kerrey unpluggged:
“…the longer I live here, the further to the left I get on healthcare!”
Ah, that’s more like it.
To quote Johnny Hart, from the old “B.C.” comic strip:
“Labor Day, schmabor day
What a stupid day.
To hire some jerk, then send him away.
To celebrate work by playing all day.”
Have a great week!
