Crossroads Launches 500,000 Fiscal Cliff Ad Buy

In the latest sign that outside groups that spent record sums on the recent election are shifting their unrestricted money to lobbying, Crossroads GPS has launched a $500,000 TV ad buy assailing President Barack Obama’s tax plan.

The spot features a moody piano track and sepia-toned images of a somber-looking Obama with the text: “President Obama promised a balanced plan,” followed by the voice-over: “But so far, a huge tax increase is his solution.” It concludes by exhorting viewers to “call President Obama and tell him it’s time to show us a balanced plan.”

Crossroads GPS spent $70.7 million in the 2012 election cycle, according to the Sunlight Foundation. The influential conservative nonprofit is affiliated with the super PAC American Crossroads, which by Sunlight’s tally spent $104.7 million.

A Crossroads statement announcing the ad buy touts House Republicans’ proposal to generate $800 billion “through reform of the tax code” and faults Obama for negotiating for “$50 billion in new spending” during budget talks.

2. THE GOP MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A HUGE TAX INCREASE

 

Therefore both democratic and republicans will be able to know the those crazy GOP congressmen are EVIL. Unless people in the red states can not think or read which has not been proven then the EVIL will still have some power.

3. So he gets re-elected by campaigning on raising rates for the top 2 brackets and because

the Rs cannot agree to that now they are going to blame the president for raising all rates.
Good PR Rs. Mr. President , we have your back. If the tax rates go up on us all we know it is the Rs fault.
NO MONEY WILL SWAY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM THAT.
