In the midst of the health care debate, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is rolling out a new set of radio ads on a different big issue, Wall Street accountability — specifically targeting House GOPers who voted against the recent financial regulation package.
“October 2008, the last months of the Bush presidency. The big banks and financial institutions almost collapsed, putting our entire economy at risk. Remember?” the announcer says. “We all know we should never let this happen again. That’s why what our Congressman ________ did last week is so disturbing.”
The ads are targeting GOP Reps. Joe Wilson (SC), Dan Lungren (CA), Mary Bono Mack (CA), Lee Terry (NE) and Charlie Dent (PA) — all of whom voted for the final version of the Wall Street bailout last year.
