Paul Ryan gets in on the Madigan bashing

Thursday, Sep 27, 2018

* From Paul Ryan’s Super PAC…

Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Madigan-Machine Politician,” in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. The ad describes Sean Casten as a Madigan-machine politician who is ready to raise taxes on Illinois families. The ad will run on television in the Chicago media market and on digital platforms throughout the district.

“As a CEO, Sean Casten lined his own pockets with corporate welfare, now he’s a Madigan-machine politician who is ready to raise taxes on Illinois families,” said Michael Byerly, CLF spokesman. “Casten says he’s open to a $32 trillion government takeover of health care that would rob from Medicare and almost double the debt. Shady Sean Casten is wrong for Illinois families.”

In addition to the ad campaign, CLF previously opened a field office in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. Each CLF field office is supported by a full-time staffer and hundreds of interns and volunteers who engage with voters on a daily basis through hyper-targeted phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.

* Script

VO: As a CEO, Sean Casten lined his own pockets with corporate welfare.

Now Casten is a Madigan-machine politician, ready to raise our taxes.

Casten says he’s open to a thirty-two trillion dollar government takeover of health care.

Robbing from Medicare, outlawing employer-provided insurance, almost doubling the debt.

Shady Sean Casten.

Backed by Madigan.

Wrong for Illinois families.

    Look out, the wonk supreme Paul Ryan has weighed in. Go back to your Ayn Rand study group, Paul.

    Deficit hawk Paul Ryan? That guy?

    Paul Ryan, a fascinating example of the Wisconsin invertebrate weasel.

    The spot is money on the nightstand for Roskam, who greased through Ways and Means the fiscally-indefensible, deficit-busting, GOP-donor tax break that stuck it to his own suburban-homeowner constituents.

    Enjoy peddling yourselves for money on K Street, boys.

    Shady Sean Casten.

    I didn’t care for his latest release on Spotify.

    Paul Ryan: Another deficit ballooning flim-flam man.
    At some point phonies like Ryan & Rauner being against you amounts to an endorsement from common sense.

    ===Paul Ryan===

    How about focusing on the ad? Only a handful of people will know that this is Ryan’s ad.

    Last warning. Deletions to follow. This ain’t Facebook.

    ===How about focusing on the ad?===

    It’s nothing but lies, innuendo and half-truths twisted to make Sean Casten appear to be the devil himself. In other words, typical national political garbage.

    Will it be effective? Probably, if people really are morons and will believe anything. More likely, it’ll just be more background noise that makes everyone wish it was November 7th already while they change the channel.

    The production values stink. Plus I think the government should take over health care–what we have right now isn’t working, we might as well try socialized medicine.


  10. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Sep 27, 18 @ 11:18 am:

    If the ad is supposed to appeal to Republicans, aren’t they the folks who invented corporate welfare? Why would they find that offensive?

    Meh. Button-pushing accusations, blaring music. The “choir” will like it. I don’t see it changing minds.

    Outlawing private insurance?

    I like my plan so luckily I can keep it

    Between the jarring images and everything being in ALL CAPS, I was afraid it would induce a seizure.

    Also, no mention of Peter Roskam, despite his being in office since 2007.


  13. - Deadbeat Conservative - Thursday, Sep 27, 18 @ 11:38 am:

    ==How about focusing on the ad?==

    =”Shady Sean Casten”=

    Sounds Trumpesque, in other words, not good.


  14. - NoGifts - Thursday, Sep 27, 18 @ 11:42 am:

    Very funny the republicans complaining about corporate welfare! LOL


  15. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 27, 18 @ 12:51 pm:

    Another good reason to vote for Sean.
