and violence against a religious group, in a house of god, tears at the heart of our humanity. at these moments of great national tragedy, we look to washington to lead... to offer solutions... to bring us together... and to appeal to all of us, as americans. we are a nation of builders and doers. we know that there are no easy answers or quick fixes. but we expect a plan. we expect to be called to a higher purpose. we expect to work together. i don't hear that call coming from washington these days... do you? in fact, i hear the opposite -- shouting and hysterics instead of calm reasoning. pointed fingers instead of open hands. division instead of unity. we see this most dramatically with the fear-mongering over immigration. americans are neither naive nor heartless. we know that we can be a nation of immigrants while also securing our borders. sadly, our greatest threats today can be found from within our borders, from a government that is constantly
7:40 am
on the verge of shutting down over partisan bickering, that is accumulating record debt, and failing to address our most urgent problems. i've never been a particularly partisan person, i've supported candidates from both sides. but at this moment, we must send a signal to republicans in washington that they have failed to lead, failed to find solutions, and failed to bring us together. that's why i'm voting democratic. america is the greatest nation on earth and for all our sakes we must start becoming the united states of america once again. thank you. independence usa pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. whoa! the mercedes-benz winter event is back and you won't want to stop for anything else.
