DNC Chair Says There is Some Truth to Controversial Super PAC Ad

The Romney campaign has been speaking out about a controversial Priorities USA ad that implies Romney may have been responsible for a woman’s death after her husband lost his job and benefits. But Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), head of the Democratic National Committee, says there may be some truth to parts of it.

“There’s no question that the ad raises facts such as that Mitt Romney, when he was CEO of Bain Capital, bankrupted companies, laid off workers, cut their benefits and made millions of dollars in profit,” said Wasserman Schultz.

“That ad points out that there are consequences to making decisions like that that impacted people’s lives in a significant way,” she added.

When pushed about the ad being from a Democratic group whose senior strategist is a former Obama staffer, she said, “I have no idea the political affiliation of folks who are associated with that Super PAC.”

Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz also talked about Governor Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick , Paul Ryan. She says that Ryan’s budget plan is an "extremist proposal."
