“The Party of No and Status Quo”

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching a pro-stimulus ad campaign targeting 28 Republican-held House districts. The ads zing Republicans for “putting bank bail outs and building schools in Iraq before the needs of the Americans in the struggling economy” and for celebrating their unanimous vote agains the stimulus. (No word on the 11 Democrats who also voted against the stimulus bill, since the Blue Dogs who ran on “fiscal responsibility” are getting a pass from leadership.)

Here’s another tidbit from the press release:

“These are serious times, hard working families are worried about keeping their jobs, health care and homes – they want action, not House Republicans cheering about doing nothing,” said Brian Wolff, Executive Director of the DCCC. “Republicans’ champagne wishes and caviar dreams simply don’t connect with middle class families struggling to make ends meet and furious that their tax dollars are going to bail out banks, build schools in Iraq, or send American jobs overseas. The Putting Families First campaign is only the first step, we will continue to go district by district to hold Republicans who continue to vote in lockstep with party leaders and against the folks in their districts accountable.”

The targeted Republicans include most of those who faced tough elections in 2008, as well as leadership team members Eric Cantor, Thaddeus McCotter, and Pete Sessions.
