ANNOUNCER: If Congressman Bunning gets his way, everything from milk to medicine would cost 30% more. Last week Jim Bunning said quote, "We ought to have a national sales tax." That\'s right, Bunning would create a whole new federal tax.

Tell Bunning, no loophole for billionaires, no new sales tax for working people.
