HMP Launches Ads Targeting Members of Congress for Lining Up Behind Paul Ryan’s Tax Scam
December 15, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Majority PAC launched digital ads in CO-06, IL-06, PA-06, TX-07 and TX-23 slamming Reps. Coffman, Roskam, Costello, Culberson and Hurd for voting for the tax scam, which will hurt hardworking middle-class Americans, all to give tax cuts to the ultra-rich.
These holiday ads highlight how these members of Congress are lining up behind Paul Ryan and his toxic tax scheme. The ad specifically focuses on how the tax scam gives massive tax cuts to the ultra-rich while raising taxes on hardworking families.
This is the second round of ads tying members of Congress to Paul Ryan and his horrendous agenda. The first round of ads, focused on the GOP’s terrible healthcare vote, launched in early November targeting CA-25, IA-01, ME-02, MI-08 and MN-02. All of these digital ads are part of HMP’s Paul Ryan campaign, which was launched in early October. The campaign released a digital ad highlighting Paul Ryan’s push for a horrible healthcare bill, and a “Fancy Paul Ryan” website that focuses on his agenda to pad the pockets of the ultra-rich at the expense of the middle class.
“These members of Congress voted for a tax scam that raises taxes on hardworking Americans,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly. “Vote after vote, they continue to ignore their constituents, and instead, line up behind Paul Ryan and his terrible agenda that benefits the ultra-rich. It’s clear where their priorities lie. They’re willing to throw their constituents under the bus, all to please their wealthy donors by providing them with hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax cuts. Their constituents deserve better, and HMP will continue to hold these members accountable for their unacceptable votes.”
