California Future Fund for Free Markets, a committee formed to communicate and advocate conservative and free market issues, today announced the release of a new TV ad that will all across the state of California in support of Proposition 32, the November ballot measure to restrict corporate and union political contributions to politicians.
CA Future Fund for Free Markets founder, Nick Ryan, issued the following statement:
“This ad exposes the ugly truth about what’s really behind California’s most powerful politicians – money…and a lot of it. Rather than serving the taxpayers who put them in office, California’s elected officials are serving the needs of the big corporations and government unions that are controlling them like puppets with millions and millions of dollars in contributions. This situation is not only untenable it’s killing California.”
“With 11 percent unemployment, high taxes, lavish pensions and billions in government waste, and, despite spending $50 billion per year on education, California is home to some of the worst performing schools in the country. These facts paint a sorry picture of a state government overrun by special interests and unaccountable to the people of California. Proposition 32 would put the taxpayers of California back in charge by cutting the ties between special interest lobbyists and career politicians.”
“The undue influence of corporations and unions in California politics threatens every person young and old. Millions of children’s futures are being shortchanged while politicians go straight to the bank. It’s time to put a stop to the back room dealing and get California’s elected officials focused on the economy, jobs and the things that really matter. It’s time to put the people of California back in the drivers seat.”
Our sources have confirmed that this buy, which will be followed by others, is a $2.2 million expenditure — which is substantial.
This is great news as the passage of this measure is something that is critical for the long term financial health of the State of California. The current paradigm, where narrow special interest groups, whether it is the public employee unions on one side, or big business on the other, are in control of the political system in California, simply is not working.
Here is the ad…
