American Action Network releases digital ads in congressional districts of Brian Mast, Carlos Curbelo

in 2017 by

The American Action Network is continuing its ad blitz, releasing a second digital ad in two Florida districts to promote tax reform.

The $250,000 digital ad campaign is part of a multi-million dollar effort to advance tax reform in Congress. The ad — which will run on online platforms in the congressional districts of Reps. Carlos Curbelo and Brian Mast — is the second in a series of advertisements featuring Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the American Action Forum president and economist.

In the 60-second spot, Holtz-Eakin talks about the need for corporation income tax reform to help grow the U.S. economy and raise the standard of living.

“We need a tax code with a permanently low rate, incentives to plow those earnings into the U.S. economy, and investment incentives to raise wages, productivity and the standard of living,” he says in the advertisement. “It’s time for corporation income tax reform.”

The ad will run in 28 congressional districts — including those of Curbelo, Mast, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — over the next two weeks. The ad is expected to run on online platforms, including YouTube and Facebook.

“A fair and simple tax code means more jobs, higher wages, and less overbearing government regulation. With the highest corporate tax rate in all the industrialized world, American job creators struggle to compete and families continue to see stagnant paychecks,” said Corry Bliss, the executive director of AAN, in a statement. “It’s time to lower rates to help incentivize investments here at home and raise our standard of living – President Trump and conservatives in Congress have a plan that will do just that.”
