A new DNC ad slams Republicans for Wall Street ties.
A new DNC ad slams Republicans for Wall Street ties.

(CNN)– The Democratic National Committee launched a television ad Friday accusing Republicans of appealing to Wall Street for campaign money in exchange for stopping proposed financial regulation from being passed.

"They're at it again, promising Wall Street 'we'll have your back'," says the narrator in the 30 second spot, citing a Wall Street Journal article published Thursday.

The ad, which cites Republican fiscal policies as a major cause of the economic recession, features a picture of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RNC Chairman Michael Steele and House Minority Leader John Boehner with the slogan "the era of putting Wall Street over Main Street is over."

It will air on national cable.

    @Sniffit – So what you're saying is the Democrats have no fault what so ever with the Wall St. bailout? And the angry populace is angry because of the poor job performance, back-room sweet heart deals from democrats. Not to mention spending us into oblivion while jet setting in military jets the way Nancy Pelosi has done.

    What? Celebrating over an ad? Only read what you like to hear?
    Please read all comments and give some thoughts to different views. They widen your horizon.
    There are other beverages than kool-aids.
    I cannot get over the fact how Reid sank so low to "take" money from 49 states to give to one state Nebraska, in perpetuity, so that he can bribe the senator to vote for his "reform' bill. If a bill is good for everyone, it does not need bribing, from its own party member. Obama allows the back room deals with dem congress with Pharma, Insurance co., and gave favors to big banks.
    Voting NO is for a reason.
    I respect your choice to support your party, but call them out for unethical conducts. Dont just cheer them on no matter what, as you are doing. We are not enemies.
    Republicans should do the same.

    What Republicans? Democrats had absolute power for a year now and they continued the G.W. Bush bailout (Geitner, who did it under Bush) and conduct of war (Gates who did it also under Bush).
    So where is and what is the change? We got inexperienced average Chicago politician in charge and things are just the same!

    For those who don't know: Ole "Suntan Boner" (John Boehner) was in New York the other day meeting the Jamie Diamond, Chairman of Chase Bank who got a $15,000,000 (million) bonus after taking TARP money last year.

    Ole Boner wants Jamie to fund the Republican campaigns (with unlimited corporate money thanks to the Right Wing activist "Supreme Court") in exchange for filibustering any attempt to pass financial reforms in Washington.

    Hey TEA Baggers and Republicans how do you like that? One of your "Fiscal Responsibility" Pols, cutting a graft deal with the banks.

    Good luck you guys.... you deserve the screwing you get!

    I love how the liberal ties the GOP with wall street. Who does Tim Geithner work for? Where did he come from? No Wall Steert lobbyists in the current cabinet, right? Why don't t Liberals tie the Dems to big labor and GE? Too close to home perhaps? Too bad no Dem received Wall Street $$$ for campaigns! Too bad!

    Wow!!! Who cares that these ads are put on cnn or msnbc? Noone is watching anyway!!! All of you should go to a tea party. You will find all three parties there. They are people seeking truth. You will not find truth in the current admin. They have been in power for years. All during the Bush years, the dems had the house and senate. They strong armed the banks into giving people who could not afford a house a loan. At least some of you should see the truth somewhere. And it ain't comin' from the white house!
    BTW please don't call me a racest, thats getting old too!!!
