Crossroads GPS Urges Action on Anti-Human Trafficking Legislation

Online Ads Target Leaders of “Unconscionable” Filibuster

WASHINGTON—Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (GPS) today announced a battery of new digital ads in four states, urging Senators to end the filibuster of bipartisan legislation aimed at combating human trafficking.  Crossroads GPS endorses S. 178, the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, which is being blocked by a filibuster over funding restriction language that was agreed to during committee consideration of the bill.

Crossroads GPS’ digital ads urge Senators Harry Reid (D-NV), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to drop their “unconscionable” filibuster and pass S. 178 for the benefit of victims of human trafficking, which includes kidnapping, modern-day slavery and forced prostitution.  S. 178 is supported by a broad array of victims’ advocates, human rights groups and law enforcement agencies.

New Crossroads GPS TV Ad: What Mark Pryor Won’t Say

Pryor May Not Be Willing to Say “Obamacare,” But He’s Still Responsible for Its Cuts to Medicare and Threats to Insurance Plans  

WASHINGTON – Today, Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) announced a new TV ad highlighting what Mark Pryor is unwilling to talk about with Arkansans: his support for Obamacare. 

The new spot, which can be viewed here, will air in Arkansas starting on September 3. The ad is part of a total buy of over $2.5 million running until November.  

“Mark Pryor has a knack for avoiding things in this Senate race, but Obamacare tops the list,” said Paul Lindsay, communications director for Crossroads GPS. “After telling Arkansans they’d be able to keep their health care plans, many received cancellation letters or faced higher premiums. If Pryor is unwilling to be honest with Arkansans about Obamacare, how can they trust him to fix it?”
