Ad Campaign Targets Dems As Biden Loses Support in Debt Ceiling Fight

As Townhall reported earlier this week, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Republicans landed a significant victory when they passed the Limit, Save, Grow Act to raise the debt ceiling and avoid default while capping discretionary spending at FY2022 levels. 


Every Democrat present voted against the House GOP's plan, even though Democrats don't have a plan of their own and President Joe Biden has refused — for more than two months — to talk or negotiate with McCarthy. 

In the Democrat-controlled Senate, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has also failed to put forward a plan of any kind of engage in any talks.

And now, more than one dozen of the House Democrats who voted against the plan that would avoid the United States' first default on its debt and keep spending at levels that Democrats themselves bragged about setting for FY2022 are being targeted with a new six-figure digital ad campaign set to blanket their districts. 

Launched by the American Action Network (AAN) on Friday, the issue advocacy campaign aims to hold fourteen House Democrats accountable for their votes on the Limit, Save, Grow Act. 

AAN says its online ads (one example is embedded below) will hit the constituents of these House members:

  • Mary Peltola (D-AK)
  • Yadira Caraveo (D-CO)
  • Jared Golden (D-ME)
  • Dan Kildee (D-MI)
  • Wiley Nickel (D-NC)
  • Gabriel Vasquez (D-NM)
  • Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)
  • Emilia Sykes  (D-OH)
  • Susan Wild (D-PA)
  • Matt Cartwright (D-PA)
  • Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (D-WA)
  • House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY)
  • Jim McGovern (D-MA)
  • Brendan Boyle (D-PA)

According to a poll conducted earlier by AAN of voters in 87 battleground congressional districts found that "by double-digit margins," voters oppose the "clean" debt limit increase that does not include reforms to lower the nation's debt that President Biden has called for. 

In addition, AAN's poll found "overwhelming" support for provisions in the House GOP's legislation such as those to reclaim unused COVID funds and reform government regulations. 

Already backed into a corner by House Republicans with his refusal to negotiate — to the chagrin of a growing number of congressional Democrats — Biden has also lost the support of Americans in his do-nothing position. According to AAN's poll, more battleground district voters agree with McCarthy's position on the debt ceiling (53 percent) than they do Biden or Democrats (39 percent).


What's more, the poll showed most voters in key districts believe McCarthy is negotiating in good faith (52 percent to 36 percent), while a majority — 51 percent — of battleground district voters say Biden will bear the blame if a deal isn't reached.

Are President Biden and Majority Leader Schumer about to bungle their way into the first default in U.S. history, one polling shows they'll own? It's no wonder Biden's job approval rating just hit a new all-time low.
