DNC Releases New Spanish-Language Ad and Underscores President’s Commitment to the Hispanic Community

Today, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced that the DNC has released a new Spanish-language ad, underscoring the President’s commitment to the Hispanic community and setting the record straight. The President’s record is clear. Under his leadership, we’ve expanded the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to an additional 4 million children, including, for the first time ever, legal immigrant children. The President enacted student loan reform, which provides an additional 150,000 Pell Grants to Hispanic students. And he signed into law the Recovery Act, which kept 1.9 million Latinos out of poverty in 2009. President Obama has always been and will always be committed to the Hispanic Community and fighting for their priorities.

The DNC ad will run in Reno, Las Vegas, Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Denver, Albuquerque, and Washington, DC.

With the release of the ad, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“The special interest-funded Crossroads is trying to hide the fact that the Republican Party would end Medicare as we know it to pay for tax cuts for the very rich. They are trying to hide the fact that Republicans are supporting a budget plan that would roll back our economic progress and place additional burdens on seniors and the middle class. But the Administration’s record is clear. President Obama has been focused from day one on strengthening economic security for working and middle class families. That’s why he extended health insurance to millions of children, expanded financial aid for our youth and cut taxes for the middle class.

“The Republican Party is offering no new solutions to the American people- they simply want to double down on the failed policies that brought our economy to the brink of a depression and hurt millions of American families, including far too many Latinos. The American people don’t want more of the failed policies of the Republican Party. What the country needs is the continued leadership of President Obama, who is focused like a laser on creating jobs and moving our country forward.”
