NRSC Releases Scathing Ad Against McCaskill for Building ‘Personal Fortune on the Backs of Taxpayers’
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) released a new ad on Thursday castigating Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) for what it calls her “business plan” to get rich on taxpayer money.
The 30-second TV ad, titled “Business Plan,” highlights how the low income housing businesses of McCaskill’s husband have received $131 million in federal subsidies since McCaskill took office. The ad went on to say the Washington power couple has pocketed as much as $22 million thanks to taxpayers’ generosity.
“Success is built on hard work and a strong business plan, but Claire McCaskill’s is built off your tax dollars,” the ad narrator said. “Since she joined the Senate, McCaskill’s husband received $131 million in federal subsidies, subsidies that let the McCaskills pocket up to 22 million dollars. They built low income housing with your tax dollars, then built themselves a fortune.”
“Claire McCaskill. She gets rich. You pay,” the ad narrator concluded.
