The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is keeping up the pressure and going after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R. KY) for supporting Social Security cuts like the chained CPI:

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 19: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), center, speaks to the press with U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-SD), left, and U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) after the weekly Senate Republicans policy luncheon on March 19, 2013 in Washington, DC. The Senate is expected to pass a revised continuing resolution and send their edits back to the House in order to prevent a government shutdown next week, but any action in the Senate may be delayed until later in the week.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell needs to be held accountable for his repeated attempts to cut Social Security.

A Kentucky autoworker (and PCCC member) named Kirk just filmed an amazing TV ad holding Mitch McConnell accountable.

Our recent poll shows that Kentuckians reject McConnell’s benefit cuts by a whopping 3 to 1. And they support increasing Social Security benefits by 2 to 1.

By highlighting McConnell’s out-of-touch stance in this ad, we can send a signal that no Republican is safe from accountability -- even the Republican Leader.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
