The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee yesterday unveiled a new robo-call aimed at Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota. The DCCC has been targeting Buchanan for some time now for the congressman’s political decisions and ethical questions surrounding contributions made to his 2006 and 2008 campaigns.

The robo-call will be run in Buchanan’s district and is part of a series of calls and ads targeting Republicans across the country. The Committee also recently unveiled attack ads targeting Florida’s Allen West, R-Fort Lauderdale.

The script of the automated phone call as follows:

Hi, this is Rick calling on behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee calling about Congressman Vern Buchanan and Republicans forcing the Super Committee to fail.

Americans demanded a bipartisan, big, bold, and balanced plan to reduce the deficit and grow our economy – but that’s not what we got.  The Super Committee failed because Republicans insisted on extending the Bush tax breaks for millionaires and refusing to include a jobs proposal – while ending the Medicare guarantee!  That’s something that Democrats stand strongly against.

By rejecting a balanced approach, Republicans chose to protect the wealthiest one percent at the expense of seniors and the middle class. Now they’re even talking about raising the payroll tax.

Please call Congressman Buchanan at 941-951-6643 and tell him it’s time to focus on us.
