Heritage Action Launches Radio Ad Campaign Targeting Senate Democrats Amid Ongoing Debate Ceiling Negotiations

Press Releases · May 25, 2023

WASHINGTON – Heritage Action, a conservative grassroots organization with two million grassroots activists, announced a radio advertisement campaign to bolster support for the House-passed Republican debt ceiling plan amid ongoing negotiations. The campaign will target U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.).

Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson released the following statement:

“While President Biden and Senate Democrats ignored pleas to sit down nearly 100 days before coming to the negotiating table and underestimated House Republican’s unity, Speaker McCarthy and House Republicans passed a common-sense solution to appropriately and reasonably raise the debt ceiling while addressing Washington's spending and inflation crisis.

Americans know that spending and debt are inherently the same issue. To avoid defaulting on our nation's debt, Biden and Senate Democrats must now recognize that the House-passed Republican plan to control spending is the only deal on the table and that is acceptable to the American people. Heritage Action’s radio advertisement campaign aims to send a clear message to Senate Democrats who have failed to stand up for the interests and well-being of their constituents.

The perspective of the American people is clear: any path forward must include the Limit, Save, Grow provisions to cap spending at FY 22 levels, roll back programmatic spending on radical Left-wing priorities like funding for 87,000 new IRS agents or student debt amnesty, and hold Congress accountable by limiting future spending. Without the inclusion of these core provisions, President Biden and Senate Democrats will continue their failed strategy to spend our country into oblivion, worsen inflation, and grow our already unsustainable debt to even higher catastrophic levels. As negotiations continue, Senate Democrats must take their responsibility to their constituents seriously and move forward with the House-passed Republican plan.”
