Obama Up With One-Minute Ad On Economy

Barack Obama's campaign has launched a new, one-minute ad on the economy that will be running in key states, according to the campaign. The ad features Obama to-camera, talking about his economic plan:

"For eight years we've been told that the way to a stronger economy was to give huge tax breaks to corporations and the wealthiest, cut oversight on Wall Street, and somehow all Americans would benefit. Well now we know the truth. Instead of prosperity trickling down, pain has trickled up. We need to change direction. Now."

"I'm Barack Obama. Here's what I'll do as president: end the Wall Street free-for-all with commonsense safeguards that put homeowners and struggling families first, not corporate greed and CEO bonuses; jumpstart our economy with a middle class tax cut, paid for by closing special interest group loopholes; get serious about energy independence -- a ten-year mission to create millions of good paying jobs by investing in made-in-America energy and infrastructure. You can read my whole plan to rebuild our economy on our website,"

"It's time to get our economy back on track and put the middle class first again. And that's why I approve this message." Watch it:
