Kerry shifts to domestic issues

by on March 23rd, 2004

In the commercial, which will air in 17 tightly contested states from Florida to Washington, Kerry says: “We need to get some things done in this country: affordable health care, rolling back tax cuts for the wealthy, really investing in our kids.” An announcer adds: “John Kerry — the military experience to defend America. A new plan to create jobs and put our economy back on track.”

The ad sidesteps Bush’s recent charges that Kerry’s $900 billion health plan would require higher taxes, or campaign manager Ken Mehlman’s assertion that there is a $1 trillion gap between the Massachusetts senator’s spending and tax proposals — an issue that Bush strategists say is likely to be highlighted in a new ad this week.
