A Conservative group focused on defying President Biden’s economic agenda launched a new $ 100,000 advertising campaign this week targeted at five House Democrats to raise consumer prices amid inflation reached its highest level since 1990.

The Coalition to Protect American Workers – a group led by Marc Short, former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence – is airing the ads in the home counties of five moderate Democrats who previously raised concerns about the President’s tax and spending of Jan. To have voiced $ 75 trillion plan.

The 30-second ad is aimed at representatives Stephanie Murphy from Florida, Ed Case from Hawaii, Jared Golden from Maine, Josh Gottheimer from New Jersey and Kurt Schrader from Oregon.


“Biden just doesn’t get it,” begins the narrator in the ad. “He doesn’t understand how much inflation is hurting Americans. Gasoline, groceries, real estate: everything is exploding. Still, Biden is still pushing his massive spending plan, which will cost trillions more than Biden claimed. If Congressional Democrats don’t stop Biden and Pelosi’s plan, many Americans will not be able to afford their heating bills this winter. ”

The announcement comes just days after the Department of Labor released new data showing consumer prices rose 6.2% year over year in October, the largest increase since December 1990. From September to October, the increase rose Inflation by 0.9%.

The Republicans have used rising inflation to attack Biden and the Democrats, arguing that another outbreak of Government spending act as an accelerator for the already rapidly rising consumer prices. Biden’s comprehensive tax and spending plan is to spend $ 1.75 trillion over the next decade on childcare, health care, and climate initiatives, paid for through higher taxes for wealthy businesses and wealthy Americans.

“When prices rise, consumers know that unnecessary government spending is not the way to reduce inflation. President Biden’s tax and spending plan will exacerbate the inflationary crisis and make it worse for Americans at home, “Katie Miller, a spokeswoman for the Coalition to Protect American Workers, said in a statement.


Still, the Biden administration has insisted that its economic plan will actually curb inflation, in part by helping to remove disruptions in the global supply chain and make necessities such as childcare and health care more affordable for low-income Americans.

“Economists across the board agree that the president’s economic agenda, the bipartisan infrastructure bill he will sign on Monday, and the Build Back Better bill we are working on will not increase inflationary pressures and will reduce inflationary pressures in the long term. ” “White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday.

The sprawling spending plan that Democrats are trying to pass along the party lines is in limbo, and some moderate lawmakers are sounding the alarm over rising prices. Although some Democrats are pushing for a House vote as early as next week, it is unclear whether that will happen or not.
