Anyone seeing paid political ads on tax reform?

I am seeing them anytime the TV is on which is admittedly not much.

These ads talk about how America has the highest corporate tax of all nations with of course, no mention of the tax deductions and loopholes that make our BIG corporations pay one of the lowest net taxes in the world. It is why GE and many others, along with the super rich and their maze of trusts and corporations pay zero in taxes.

Is there any group that can counter some of these ads? The low information Americans are going to be calling their politicians to tell them what the Donors have already told them to do. We need to counter this by letting the Donors politicians know we understand the game and will punish them for this at the voting booth!

1. Tax propaganda ads by the greedmonger wealthiest using

working class situations to entice the masses. More redumbliCON lies and fraud. Next week's ads will attempt to convince US more National Debt is a good thing. Insane.

2. I have seen the ads twice so far.

I don't know where to get a source to disprove it though. Is the ad only addressing corporations and businesses or all tax payers (personal taxes as well)? When I first saw the ad my thoughts focused on the taxes that people in other countries, like those in Europe, pay which are higher personal taxes but that is due to the fact that they also have cheaper medical expenses, etc. In the long run you get what you pay for and even though they pay more the receive much, much more than we do if you compare percentages and overall costs.
