EXCLUSIVE: A leading conservative issue advocacy group is launching a new website spotlighting what it calls House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "Socialist Spending Spree" as it targets the Democrats’ massive, multitrillion-dollar government spending plans.
The launch of the new website, SocialistSpendingSpree.com, which was shared first with Fox News on Tuesday by the pro-GOP American Action Network (AAN), is part of the outside group’s push this year to torpedo the social spending, human infrastructure and climate change bill the White House and congressional Democrats are struggling to pass into law.
CONSERVATIVE GROUP LAUNCHES MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR PUSH TO DERAIL DEMOCRATS' MASSIVE SPENDING PACKAGE
Congressional Democrats – who hold razor-thin majorities in both the House and Senate – are aiming to pass their package along party lines through a parliamentary process known as reconciliation.
If it becomes law, the measure would become the biggest expansion of the federal government’s social safety net in many decades. To pay for their plan, Democrats are calling for tax hikes on corporations and the wealthiest earners, as well as beefing up the IRS in order to generate more revenue by cracking down on people who cheat or underpay on their taxes.
But AAN communications director Calvin Moore charges that "any Member that votes for the socialist spending spree is going to have a tough time explaining why working Americans and small business should foot the bill for handouts to Nancy Pelosi and her liberal cronies."
