Second House Majority PAC FL-13 Ad Features Largo Retirees on David Jolly & Social Security Privatization

February 14, 2014

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today released its second TV ad in the FL-13 special election, featuring Largo, Fla., retirees Elizabeth and Rod Snedeker discussing the threat to Social Security posed by the privatization plan supported by a right-wing group on whose behalf David Jolly lobbied.

The spot, entitled “We Saw,” will run in rotation with House Majority PAC’s first spot, “Privatized” as part of House Majority PAC’s previously announced, two-week TV buy, which has been increased to $750,000.

“We Saw” can be viewed here: 

“As someone who lobbied for a right-wing group that backed a plan to privatize Social Security – reducing benefits and eliminating the program’s guarantee, according to the non-partisan AARP – it’s obvious David Jolly is out of touch with the needs of Pinellas County,” said Andy Stone, Communications Director for House Majority PAC. “Jolly’s plan to risk benefits on Wall Street would have real consequences. That’s something the Snedekers, who lost 40 percent of their savings when the stock market crashed, know all too well.”
