Top 3 Moments Of The New York 11th Congressional District Debate

Category: AR PAC

WASHINGTON – Today, American Crossroads released a new web video focusing on the new taxes in President Obama’s proposed job bill.

Entitled “Pay this Bill,” the new video spoofs Obama’s repeated exhortations for Congress to “pass this bill” by editing video footage to make the president say what he means – that American taxpayers must “pay this bill.”  The video can be viewed here:

“President Obama’s jobs bill is really a tax bill that will hurt small businesses, manufacturing and energy jobs, and even charities,” said American Crossroads president and CEO Steven Law. “Obama’s tax hike won’t become law, but it will still inflict uncertainty and damage on the economy, and we’re going to hold Obama accountable when it happens.”

WASHINGTON – Today, American Crossroads released the statement below on the special elections for the U.S. House in New York City and Nevada. Please credit the statement to Steven Law, president and CEO of American Crossroads:

“The clearest implication from the two special elections last night is that President Obama and the economy he owns have become an undeniable drag on Democrats running for Congress. While Obama had a net positive job approval rating when Democrats took the NY-26 special in May, the difference is that he was between 10-30 points upside down in polling in both house districts that voted yesterday.”
