AFSCME and NEA join SEIU in ad buy showing a bleak life in "Boehnerville" #default

SEIU and its partners are making it clear that it won't be a wonderful life for the vast majority of Americans if John Boehner's vision for America is realized in the coming weeks. A new ad entitled "Boehnerville," now running nationally, paints the bleak picture of what faces the U.S. if education is cut and Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are put at risk.

The ad asks calls on people to call their member of congress to urge them to protect Medicare and Social Security, while also voting to make the rich pay their fair share. Watch it here:

You can also check out Chris Matthews' coverage of the new ad that aired on MSNBC's Hardball night. Matthews' discussion on the ad weaves in footage from the famous 1946 movie, "It's a Wonderful Life" - the movie concept which actually served as the basis for the new ad. Watch the MSNBC clip here.
