Crossroads GPS Launches New Radio Ads Urging Senators to Support a Truly Balanced Fiscal Cliff Plan

Spots push Senators to support plan that includes serious spending cuts not just Obama’s massive tax hikes

WASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today launched new radio ads urging Senators to insist on the balanced plan that President Obama promised to avoid the fiscal cliff and help the economy.

The ads urge U.S. Senators Mark Begich (Alaska), Mary Landrieu (Louisiana), Kay Hagan (North Carolina), and Tim Johnson (South Dakota) to support significant spending cuts as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations.  The spots, supported by a $240,000 total buy, begin airing today on local radio stations and can be listened to using the links below:

  • The Alaska spot can be listened to here.
  • The Louisiana spot can be listened to here.
  • The North Carolina spot can be listened to here.
  • The South Dakota spot can be listened to here.

“A balanced plan includes more than just the massive tax increases President Obama is insisting Congress pass, and these U.S. Senators should lead by pushing for significant spending cuts,” said Crossroads GPS president and CEO Steven Law. “It is up to these U.S. Senators to push President Obama and Harry Reid to show real leadership by negotiating a balanced plan which stops Washington spending and helps our economy.”

Conservative leaders in the U.S. House have proposed $800 billion in new revenue through reform of the tax code, which was immediately slapped down by the Obama White House. Meanwhile, President Obama’s primary negotiation in the deficit reduction talks included $50 billion in new spending.

Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future.
