EXCLUSIVE: Leading Conservative issues group launches new website highlighting what it calls Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi‘s “Socialist spending spree” as it targets the democratsâMassive multi-billion dollar government spending plans.
The launch of the new website, SocialistSpendingSpree.com, which was first shared with Fox News on Tuesday by the pro-GOP American Action Network (AAN), is part of the outside group’s efforts this year to torpedo the bill on social spending, human infrastructure and the climate change that the White House and Congressional Democrats are struggling to pass into law.
CONSERVATIVE GROUP LAUNCHES MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR POWER TO DRAW DEMOCRATS ‘MASSIVE SPENDING PACKAGE
The Congressional Democrats – who hold very slim majorities in the House and Senate – aim to get their package passed along party lines through a parliamentary process known as reconciliation.
If passed into law, the measure would become the largest expansion of the federal government’s social safety net in decades. To pay for their plan, Democrats are calling for tax hikes on businesses and the wealthiest, as well as strengthening the IRS to generate more income by cracking down on people who cheat or underpay their taxes.
But AAN communications director Calvin Moore says “Any member who votes for socialist spending madness will have a hard time explaining why American workers and small businesses should foot the bill for gifts to Nancy Pelosi and her friends. liberal buddies “.
The new website features what the AAN sees as unpopular elements of the spending bill, including “tax credits for elite liberal universities, tax breaks for the wealthy who want to buy electric cars.” . Also highlighted is what some Republicans have called “Pelosi Park”: $ 200 million federal funding for the Presidio, a historic military base that has been turned into a 1,500-acre park, and a real estate development of first order in San Francisco, located in the President’s Congressional District.
The launch of the site follows internal survey released last week by AAN which suggests the Democrats’ spending program is unpopular in major congressional swing districts. Republicans need a net gain of just five seats to win back a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm election. AAN has already spent around $ 14 million this year running ads targeting Democrats potentially vulnerable on their party’s spending budget.

The White House and Congressional Democrats have been unable to agree on an overall price and what is included in their social spending and climate change agenda, due to disagreements between moderate parties and progressive. The war within the parties also delayed passage of a separate bipartisan $ 1,000 billion infrastructure bill.
