DEBT & SPENDING: New Crossroads GPS Issue Ad in North Carolina Highlights Fiscal Issues

Focuses on Massive Debt and the Need for a Balance Budget Amendment

WASHINGTON – Today, Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) announced a new TV issue ad highlighting the massive government spending in Washington that has put our country more than seventeen trillion dollars in debt.


The new ad will air in North Carolina starting on July 24 as part of a total buy of $3,550,000 that started in late May.  The spot can be viewed here.

 “While North Carolina families are tightening their belts, lawmakers in Washington are putting our country deeper in debt and forcing future generations to shoulder the cost,” said Paul Lindsay, communications director for Crossroads GPS. “Senator Hagan has said we can’t continue down this road, but her votes to raise the debt limit and oppose a balanced budget amendment are making things worse. It’s time for North Carolinians to tell Washington to balance the budget.”

“Tell Mark Pryor: Arkansas Families Can’t Afford Obamacare. Repeal It”

The new spot, which can be viewed here, will air in Arkansas for a total buy of over $435,000 starting on Tuesday, July 8.
