“The Tax March, a nonprofit group affiliated with the ‘Not One Penny’ progressive coalition, says they will spend around $500,000 on the ad campaign in the Las Vegas media market.

The new spot, ‘Rigged,’ features a pair of children playing the popular ‘claw’ arcade game and struggling to pick up any cash from the machine. Next, a wealthy-looking man plays and wins easily, walking away with a bag full of money. ‘Boondoggle. Unfair. A tax cut for the rich. That’s what they’re calling the new tax plan out of Washington. 83% of the benefits go to the richest 1%,’ a narrator says. ‘It adds $1.9 trillion to our national debt, which may force cuts to Medicare and Social Security. A tax plan for the rich. We pay the price.’” (CNN)
