NRCC Launches Ads and Robocalls on Target Dems
New Ads Reveal Democrats’ Real Record for Out-of-Control Spending Spree
Washington– The NRCC is announcing a new ad offensive aimed at holding Democrats in Congress accountable for authorizing to spend American taxpayers’ money at the rate of a billion dollars an hour.  Television ads, radio ads and robocalls will launch in 43 districts across the country to confront these Democrats for endorsing a reckless spending spree in Washington and authorizing over $1.2 trillion in new spending so far this year.

“Democrats have failed to be honest about their willingness to support a pork-filled stimulus package and a budget that taxes, spends and borrows in excess at the expense of their constituents,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain.  “We will continue to hold these Democrats accountable for rubber-stamping Nancy Pelosi’s agenda that will burden middle-class families and inflict further damage on an already fragile economy for years to come.”

The ads and calls will begin this week during the congressional recess while these Washington Democrats will have to face their constituents and try to explain why they voted for a pork-laden stimulus package and a $3.5 trillion budget.

A television ad began airing today hitting Zack Space in Ohio’s 18th Congressional District:
