Markey Ad Blasts Opponent For Supporting Tax Policies That Help The Rich

A new television ad released by the campaign of Massachusetts Democratic senate candidate Ed Markey on Tuesday touts his support of tax policies that would help middle class families.

“Ed Markey wants fairness in our taxes,” the narrator says in the ad. “That’s why he’s proposing to close our corporate tax loopholes and passing the Warren Buffett rule, making milliones pay the same tax rate as the middle class.” In contrast, the ad says his opponent, Republican Gabriel Gomez, thinks the “rich already pay enough.”

President Barack Obama officially endorsed Markey earlier today, calling him a “champion for middle class and working families.”
