Outside Group Hits Schneider With Attack Ad

New Prosperity Foundation running commercials claiming Schneider supports higher taxes and more government control.

Television commercials attacking aired today accusing him of supporting higher taxes, bigger government and taking medical decisions out of doctors’ hands, according to a story on the Huffington Post.

The ads are sponsored by the New Prosperity Foundation located in Chicago and headed by Highland Park native Ron Gidwitz. They are targeted against Schneider and two other Democrats—Tammy Duckworth and former Rep. Bill Foster (D-Geneva)—who are all in nationally targeted races.

Schneider campaign manager Reed Adamson denies the allegations in the commercial taking particular aim at the allegation about the doctor-patient relationship.

"This right-wing group is only interested in holding on to this seat and their willingness to invoke 'death panels,' which have been proven time and again to be completely fictional, just shows the lengths to which they'll go protecting the Tea Party agenda," Adamson said to Patch.

Schneider is running against . Dold campaign spokesperson John McGovern said the Dold campaign had nothing to do with the commercials and legally cannot.

New Prosperity is trying to elect Republicans in the Midwest, according to the Huffington Post article.

It would have been nice if the dummies at New Prosperity would have at least spelled Brad Schneiders name correctly. Idiots..

Try emailing Mr. Dold a question. You won't get a reponse. He's not our Congressman. He belongs to Grover Norquist.

Well let's keep score: Support for higher taxes? All Democrats in Washington support higher taxes. New Prosperity 1, Schneider 0 Bigger Government? Schneider will not vote to repeal the biggest of big government programs, ObamaCare. Dold has. New Prosperity 2, Schneider 0 Taking medical decisions out of doctors' hands? Again, ObamaCare. New Prosperity 3, Schneider 0 This is not an attack ad. It is an issue oriented ad. An attack ad would go after the personal life and business of Schneider. You know, like the Democrats are doing to Dold in these comments.

You are so right! We don't need bigger government, labor departments, overtime laws, minimum wage lawys, water and air protection etc. Congressman Dold should address this problem of government telling an owner that he should pay overtime to lazy bums! Paying overtime might close down a business so hopefully Congressman Dold hear the desperate plea for help by many business owners who are told by lazy employees they have to be paid just because they worked over 40 hours in a week. So what? This country was built working more than 40 hours in a week and no one got overtime then so why now? Congressman Dold abolish the overtime lawys to save jobs.
