WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Majority PAC launched a campaign slamming Paul Ryan for continually pushing an agenda that prioritizes millionaires and billionaires ahead of hardworking middle-class families.
As part of the campaign, HMP launched a digital ad highlighting Speaker Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) push that included tax cuts for the rich while imposing a horrendous “Age Tax” on people over 50, who would be charged up to five times more than younger consumers.
In conjunction with the digital ad, HMP launched a “Fancy Paul Ryan” website, which highlights his agenda to pad the pockets of the ultra-rich at the expense of the middle class. This includes pushing legislation that repealed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and gutted Dodd-Frank, as well as crafting numerous budgets that truly are bad for the American people. His plans have undermined critical investments, from slashing funding for infrastructure and education, to ending Medicare as we know it, to making deep cuts to Medicaid and threatening Social Security.
“Time and time again Paul Ryan pretends to be a champion of the middle class, but the truth is that for nearly 20 years, Paul Ryan has shown nothing but contempt for hardworking families,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly. “From health care to our economy, to critical programs for millions of families, he’s proven that he’s out-of-touch, and that in his America, the wealthy and well connected come first. He cares more about scoring political points than being an effective leader for the American people. HMP will expose Paul Ryan for who he truly is, a fancy D.C. politician who pursues policies that please the ultra-rich while leaving hardworking middle-class Americans in the rearview mirror. You can bet that HMP will be here every step of the way to hold Paul Ryan accountable to his constituents and the American people.”
