(CNN) - Barack Obama and John McCain both released tax policy attack ads Wednesday.
Obama’s campaign unveiled a 30-second TV spot – the latest in a series of negative ads running in major battleground states – that takes aim at John McCain over tax policy.
"Can we really afford more of the same?" asks the announcer asks. The ad accuses McCain of planning to give major tax breaks to oil companies, big corporations and “companies shipping jobs overseas” while giving millions of Americans “no tax relief at all.”
Obama's campaign said the ad, titled "Three Times," will hit the airwaves Wednesday in Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
John McCain’s campaign said Wednesday it was releasing its own attack ad in “key states” Wednesday, its second negative radio spot this week.
“Celebrities like to spend their millions. Barack Obama is no different. Only it's your money he wants to spend,” says the announcer in “Millions,” adding: “Obama's got plans - big plans - for your money” that would mean “piling more debt on the backs of your children and grandchildren.”
McCain has not yet released a new television spot this week, but has dramatically outspent Obama on TV spots in several critical fall states in recent weeks, including the crucial swing state of Florida.
