Retired Americans PAC Launches Debt Ceiling Ad Campaign
Digital Ads in 10 Congressional Districts Tell Congress to
Protect Social Security Payments
Retired Americans PAC, a political arm of the Alliance for Retired Americans, is running digital ads in 10 congressional districts and Washington, DC. The 15- and 30- second ads warn voters that Social Security checks could be at risk if Congress doesn’t raise the U.S. debt ceiling and encourage them to call their member of Congress to demand they vote to raise it immediately. The six-figure buy will run for up to 2 weeks.
“Seniors earned their Social Security benefits over a lifetime of work and rely on them to pay for food, prescriptions, and other necessities,” said Richard Fiesta. “Older Americans will not support any politician who jeopardizes their benefits for partisan games.”
In addition to the Washington, DC area, the ads are running in AZ-01 (David Schweikert), AZ-06 (Juan Ciscomani), CA-13 (John Duarte), CA-22 (David Valadao), CA-27 (Mike Garcia), CA-40 (Young Kim), CA-41 (Ken Calvert), MI-10 (John James), NY-22 (Brandon Williams), and VA-02 (Jennifer Kiggans).
