FactCheck.org pans a TV ad by two Democratic PACs that claim Republican Linda McMahon’s tax plan would hurt the middle class.

“A TV ad funded by two Democratic PACs falsely claims Linda McMahon’s “tax plan hurts middle-class families.” Actually, her tax plan would reduce the marginal income tax rates for middle-income families – married couples earning roughly between $70,700 and $142,700 – while keeping the current rates the same for everyone else.”

One of the PACs is local, the Connecticut’s Future PAC, which reported a week ago that it spent about $100,000 to buy time for the ad. The other, Majority PAC, is national. It reported contributing $10,960 to production costs.
