The Family Research Council Action PAC has announced that it is spending $125,000 to air ads targeting five Democratic members of Congress – Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ-8), Betsy Markey (D-CO-4), Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH-1), John Boccieri (D-OH-16), and Tom Perriello (D-VA-5) -for voting “for business-crushing pieces of legislation, including the new health care law that allows for taxpayer funding of abortions”:
The ad features a working-class American with a man in a suit hanging on his back, representing “big government.”
The American says:
“I woke up one morning and it was there: big government on my back. It’s a huge problem. It’s affecting everyone. They’re taking over our health care, using our money to bail out big business.”
“Even our kids are in trouble,” the ad continues, since the government is leaving trillions of dollars in debt for them to pay off.
It concludes: “Congress supported big health care, big bailouts, big debt. Get Washington off our backs – stop big government on Election Day.”
