Allen's "Economically Destructive" Plan Could Cost 700,000 Jobs, Hurt Businesses and the Middle Class
Richmond, VA - In an ad unveiled last week, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) highlights just what the middle class and small businesses stand to lose by re-electing George Allen to the Senate. As a senator, Allen voted to give tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas while voting against tax breaks that help small businesses. As he runs for re-election, Allen continues to tout an all-cuts approach to the budget that could slash 700,000 jobs nationwide, hurting Virginia's families, businesses, and economy.
"Virginia cannot afford to go back to George Allen's policies that put the wealthiest Americans and big corporations ahead of the middle class and small business," said Kaine for Virginia Communications Director Brandi Hoffine. "Tim Kaine knows that the pathway to lasting economic prosperity is investments in the engines of job growth, small businesses, and Virginia's workforce. This ad is an important message for all voters - from Northern Virginia to Bristol to the Eastern Shore -- to see."
