Job Creators Network to Air Unique, Powerful TV Ad During Democratic Debate

Washington, DC – On Thursday, June 27, during the Democratic debate, Job Creators Network (JCN) will air a uniquely powerful TV ad featuring a survivor of socialism: Dina Rubio, a Florida small business owner and JCN member who fled socialist Nicaragua during the 1980’s and is now deeply concerned about the Democrats’ socialist agenda. The 60-second ad gives a personal touch and will run in Miami on Telemundo and in Washington, DC on MSNBC during the debate. To watch the ad, click here.  

Alfredo OrtizJCN President and CEO released the following statement.

With the Democrats tripping over themselves to embrace socialist policies, they should listen to the words of Dina Rubio, a real-life survivor of socialism and American success story.  As someone who built their own business from scratch, Dina knows better than any Democratic politician what America’s economy needs to grow and prosper.  Dina is the living embodiment of JCN’s motto that “socialism takes, capitalism creates.”

On Tuesday, published Mr. Ortiz’s column, 2020 Democratic debate No. 1: What small business wants to know.

To interview Mr. Ortiz or Elaine Parker, JCN Chief Communications Officer, please contact T.J. Winer ([email protected]) or Samantha Azzarelli ([email protected])Mr. Ortiz will be in Miami Thursday. 

Dina Rubio is the owner of Don Ramon Restaurant in West Palm Beach, Florida.

A transcript of the ad is below.

My family lived through the socialist revolution in Nicaragua. We saw firsthand how the promises of equality and government assistance quickly turned into government control and oppression.

When the government takes over the economy, it also takes away people’s opportunities.

I love America and the American dream, so it’s very scary to see socialistic ideas gaining popularity in this country.

Some people say that America can have democratic socialism and it will never be like Cuba, or Venezuela, or Nicaragua. But I lived through the changes and if we’re not careful, it could happen here.

America is the greatest country in the world and our free-market capitalist economy is what keeps us great.
