Union ad: GOP 'inflicting pain on millions' with sequester

"How will you be remembered Sen. McConnell? For serving honorably or for inflicting pain on millions to protect tax loopholes for corporations and the richest few," says the narrator in the ad.

“By refusing to budge, you and Republican leaders have guaranteed reckless automatic cuts that will devastate our troops, first responders, students, educators, families, seniors and could destroy a million American jobs," the ad continues.

“These ads will let the public know that Republican leaders are responsible for failing to stop reckless automatic cuts that will hurt families and our economy,” said Peter Colavito, SEIU’s director of government relations, in a statement.

Along with McConnell, the ads will go after Reps. Dan Benishek (R-Mich.), Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), Tom Latham (R-Iowa), Gary Miller (R-Calif.) and Daniel Webster (R-Fla.). Online ads will also be part of the campaign.
