Saw my first broadcast SuperPAC ad on TV in NJ today.
The Committee for Our Children’s Future (Please think of the children! - Regressives), is out to talk up “Chris Christie and Reformers”
While Chris Christie is the primo GOP governor, visiting numerous states to charge up the base (loudmouth white guys). The “Reformers” remain unnamed, but they will be an “acceptable” mix of Ds and Rs the monied interests have lined up.
How will we save the children? You ask?
"CCF is a non-profit organization advocating for tax and government spending reforms that restore long-term fiscal health and solidify the economic foundation for our kids and grandkids. Our priorities are to make government spending more efficient, lower the tax burden, and secure our economic future with pro-growth policies."
Austerity! Slash government revenue down to nothing, kill public unions and subvert private ones, and give the deed to the 1%. Their rational self interest will guide us to the new Golden Age
CCF has no obligation to say who is funding them. They have a PO box in Jersey, but their ad’s Press Release has a DC byline. This is a definite move by monied interests (Kochs, ALEC) to take control of the State Government and implement NeoLiberal Austerity.
