DCCC Billboards Put 10 House Republicans’ Radical Records in Plain View

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched billboards in 10 Republican districts making voters aware of their House Republicans’ misplaced priorities that put partisanship and a radical agenda ahead of real solutions for America’s middle class. Despite bipartisan opposition to the plan, each of these House Republicans voted for the Republican budget that ends the Medicare guarantee and raises middle class taxes, all while cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans from 39 percent to 25 percent.

“Every day when these Members’ constituents drive home, they think of how they will pay their bills, support their families, and pay for their healthcare and retirement – and now they will be reminded that their Republican Member of Congress would rather put radical ideology ahead of solutions for those worries,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “The Republican budget puts millionaires ahead of the middle class and partisanship before solutions, and now Republicans will not be able to hide from their radical records, because they are in plain view. Instead of offering bipartisan solutions, these House Republicans have chosen partisanship again.”

  • AARP said that this budget “shifts costs onto seniors and future retirees” and is “removing the Medicare guarantee of affordable health coverage seniors have contributed to through a lifetime of hard work.”
  • The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities found that “families with children that have incomes below $200,000 would have to face tax increases averaging more than $3,000 a year,” potentially losing middle class benefits like the mortgage interest deduction while millionaires will still have “an average net tax cut of about $245,000.”
