NRCC Ad Campaign Hits Democrats for Reckless Spending

Posted April 13, 2009 at 12:21pm

The National Republican Congressional Committee isn’t letting Democrats take a break from Washington politics over the spring recess. The party committee is going on the air this week with a mix of television ads, radio ads and robocalls accusing 43 House Democrats in swing districts of supporting “a reckless spending spree” by voting for the recently passed budget resolution (H Con Res 85).

The ads — an example of which, targeting Rep. Zack Space of Ohio, is on YouTube — accuse the Democrats in question of joining Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to push through more than $1.2 trillion in new spending since the 111th Congress began.
