The Dem group Protect Our Care is running a digital spot knocking Republicans for opposing the federal COVID-19 bill.
The ad is running nationally on Facebook and in Wisconsin.
It comes as U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, objected to allowing debate on the COVID-19 bill to begin before the document is read aloud. Reading the bill is expected to take about 10 hours.
The group declined to provide details on the size of the buy.
The narrator says “President Biden and Democrats in Congress are doing everything they can to get the pandemic under control.” The narrator adds the bill means real benefits for American families such as direct checks, savings on their health insurance bill, more vaccines and reopening schools faster.
“But Mitch McConnell and Republicans in Congress continue to oppose this relief package even if it means endangering our economic recovery and prolonging this crisis for families and communities across the country,” the narrator says. “It’s time Republicans stopped playing politics with our livelihoods and our lives.”
