Sen. Obama is running a new ad in Iowa.
In ‘Enough’, a 30-second spot that debuted in the Hawkeye State this weekend, Barack Obama tells an Iowa crowd that “We gotta stop giving tax breaks to companies that are moving overseas and give those tax breaks to companies that are investing right here in Iowa…Enough is enough.
“If the plant moves to China, and you’ve been working there for 20, 30 years and suddenly you have the rug pulled out from under ya…and you don’t have health care, and you don’t have a pension, you’re on your own,” says the Illinois senator.
The ad was unveiled the same weekend as John Edwards’ $25 billion job creation plan. It calls for increasing federal aid to help “hard-working families across America [who] are already struggling to make ends meet,” the former North Carolina senator said in a statement.
Obama and Edwards have sparred in recent weeks over who is best-equipped to take on corporate interests and fight for economic reform.
