Today's Influence Ads: Shopping Centers Group Criticizes Tax Collection Policy

The deal-laden chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over, but the tension between brick-and-mortar stores and their online counterparts is heating up. The International Council of Shopping Centers is out with two new ads today blasting existing sales tax collection policy as unfair.

Six other new spots went out Tuesday. AARP is out with a new ad criticizing the idea of raising the retirement age. America's Credit Unions and the Credit Union National Association went in on an ad endorsing the Small Business Lending Enhancement Act, and the American Diabetes Association has a new spot encouraging Congress not to cut funds for diabetes research.

The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget also has a two-page spread asking Congress to fix the debt, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has an ad seeking ideas for improving the Metro, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation has a new promotion thanking its donors.

Those with continuing ads, per Kantar Media's Washington Eye, include: the American Bankers Association, the American Cancer Society, the American College of Radiology, the American Healthcare Association, the American Petroleum Institute, U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command, the Consumer Electronics Association, Fair Search, Goldman Sachs, Hologic, Kaiser Permanente, McDonald's, the Military Coalition, the National Restaurant Association, Raytheon, Whirlpool and WTOP-Radio.
