Paid calls hit Reps. Young, Southerland, Webster on sequester



The DCCC is paying for robo calls to voters in the swing congressional districts represented by CW Bill Young, Daniel Webster, and Steve Southerland. Here's the script:

Hello. This is Jennifer calling from the DCCC. On March 1st, America’s middle class is going to pay a terrible price because Congressman Bill Young backed a sequester plan that will eliminate more than 2 million jobs, slow our economy and may drive us back into a recession. 

It can be stopped. Congress can pass a balanced plan that reduces the deficit with smart spending cuts, ends tax breaks for millionaires and closes wasteful tax loopholes for Big Oil companies that are already making record profits.

But Congressman Young refuses. He won’t compromise on a solution for the middle class because he is protecting tax breaks for the well-off and well-connected.  These cuts will be devastating and could set us back for a generation.

Unfortunately, Congressman Young is siding with the worst kind of Tea Party dysfunction and partisanship in Washington, instead of solving problems and protecting the middle class.

Press 1 right now if you’d like me to connect you directly with Congressman Young to demand that he gets behind a plan to end the sequester and put the middle class ahead of millionaires and corporate special interests.
