A new ad from the McCain campaign and the Republican National Committee declares that Barack Obama and congressional leaders are ready to tax and spend, but not ready to lead.
"Take away the crowd, the chant, all that's left are costly words," a narrator says to dark images of an Obama Rally in the 30-second spot.
"Barack Obama and out of touch congressional leaders have expensive plans, billions in new government spending, years of deficits, no balanced budgets and painful tax increases on working American families," the narrator continues as images of Democratic Congressional leaders fade unto the screen."They're ready to tax, ready to spend, but not ready to lead."
The ad is running in Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
