A national conservative group targets Axne for its support for the Build Back Better law
DES MOINES, Iowa – Heritage Action launched an advertising campaign last Thursday targeting U.S. Representative Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, for her support of the Build Back Better Act, the $ 1.75 trillion social spending bill she voted for on Friday.
The ad (see above) also criticized Axne’s apparent support for the change in the local and state tax deduction cap (SALT) present in the bill she passed. The bill increased the national and local tax deduction limit (SALT) from $ 10,000 to $ 72,500 for five years, then extended that limit until 2031. The Tax Foundation find those who would benefit most from this $ 300 billion provision are households earning between $ 200,000 and $ 1 million per year.
The broadcast ad will air in the Des Moines area and the digital ad in the 3rd Congressional District of Iowa. Heritage Action is targeting five House Democrats in a $ 1.25 million TV and digital ad buy for their support of increasing the SALT deduction cap. This month’s $ 1.25 million SALT deduction ad purchase is the latest installment of Heritage Action’s $ 2 million plus cable, broadcast and digital advertising campaign to boost oppose the Democrats’ “Build Back Broke program”.
Heritage Action is just one of many groups investing in what will end up being a hotly contested race in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
“Democrats are actively trying to divide Americans along every line imaginable and then keep campaign promises to some Americans in those divisions. But behind closed doors, they are working to pay the coastal elites in the Blue States. Their last plan is to give $ 200 billion in Blue State bailouts to their wealthy friends at the expense of all other Americans. This provision is just the latest of hundreds of dangerous and conflicting elements of Biden’s tax and spending agenda. Heritage Action will continue to hold Liberal politicians accountable and expose their Build Back Broke program for what it really is, ”said Jessica Anderson, Executive Director of Heritage Action, in a released statement.
“Nancy Pelosi slipped a big tax break for her wealthy friends into Biden’s inflated expense bill. The wealthy get tax breaks on their Hamptons beach homes and Malibu mansions. And you foot the bill. With crushing taxes on small businesses and skyrocketing inflation, pushing up the prices of gasoline and groceries, the coastal elites get a privileged deal on their taxes, and you pay more, ”the report says in part. advertising.
Heritage Action is a national grassroots organization with nearly two million grassroots activists across the country. Heritage Action advances the policies of its partner organization, The Heritage Foundation, and strives to make them happen.
