American Crossroads, the group that Karl Rove put together will be running an ad No More Blank Checks, in 10 Democrat districts to take on the blank checks that they want to continue to give this President. I encourage Karl to run the ad in the districts of Republicans who even think about giving Obama a blank check with Senator McConnell’s plan. It doesn’t matter the letter after the name, it matters that the Country is broke and each individual Congressperson must say no more America Cannot Afford More Blank Checks.
The TV spots, totaling nearly $1.4 million, will run for two weeks starting on Monday, according to American Crossroads, as part of their “No More Blank Checks” ad blitz hitting Democrats on the age-old themes of taxing and spending.
Most of the “Watch” ad against the Democrats come in same basic template — an iPad featuring the clips of the representatives’ calling for responsible government spending, after which the narrator points to the actual “billions in new taxes and trillions in crushing debt” and the “reckless spending.”
“The debt limit debate going on now is a once a decade opportunity to have a real, lasting impact on fiscal policy in America,” American Crossroads communications director Jonathan Collegio, told The Daily Caller. “These ads are designed to apply pressure to key members of Congress leading up to the vote. ”
The Democrats getting all the attention are Reps. Mike Ross of Arkansas; Jim Matheson of Utah; Kurt Schrader of Oregon; Heath Shuler of North Carolina; Bill Owens and Tim Bishop of New York; Ben Chandler of Kentucky; Leonard Boswell of Iowa; Jerry Costello of Illinois and Lois Capps of California
