*** Watch the Ad Here: *** National Ad to Run During Sunday Shows; Local Ads Target Reps. Allen West & David Rivera A new 60-second television ad released today by Democracy for America targets Republicans for killing the American Dream and failing to create jobs. The ad, Dont Kill the Dream, which will air both nationally and in targeted congressional districts, features Americans who want Republicans in Congress to stop dismantling the middle class and killing the American Dream. The ad calls out Republicans for slashing vital programs the middle class depends on while simultaneously insisting on tax breaks and loopholes for corporations and millionaires. The ad will run nationally on Sunday shows and in the districts of Allen West (FL - 22) and David Riveras (FL -25). This is part of Democracy for Americas national campaign to hold Republicans accountable that will run from now until the election in 2012. You can watch the national ad here: Republicans, by pushing a radical agenda in Washington, are killing the American Dream for tens of millions of Americans.," said Levana Layendecker, Communications Director, Democracy for America. Americans everywhere are fed up with the Republican attack on the middle class, and we are demanding that Representatives in Washington focus on practical economic solutions, which create good jobs and a strong economy. We need Representatives in Washington to protect the American Dream, not kill it. We will be working everyday between now and Election Day in 2012 to hold those who are killing the American Dream accountable." #### ABOUT DEMOCRACY FOR AMERICA Democracy for America is a people-powered Democratic Political Action Committee.
