AFP Calls Out Train Wreck of Bidenomics in New Accountability Ads

Feb 28, 2024 by AFP

Turns Up Heat on Lawmakers Who Voted for Higher Prices and More Inflation

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity has launched a new round of ads calling out the train wreck of Bidenomics and holding lawmakers accountable ahead of Biden’s State of the Union address. The ads turn up the heat on House and Senate lawmakers who voted to greenlight Biden’s runaway spending train and unleash the higher prices and economic pain facing Americans.

WATCH: “Runaway Train”

In the last four years, Biden’s reckless spending has driven the national debt past $34 trillion – more than $258,000 of debt per household – and Americans’ purchasing power has declined as families have seen the prices of goods and services rise much faster than their income. Prices are now 17.9% higher and the average household is paying $11,400 more each year just to maintain the same quality of life as when Biden took office.

AFP’s Vice President of Government Affairs Akash Chougule said:

“President Biden loves this economy so much he’s named it after himself—Bidenomics. But while Biden thinks this economy is the American Dream, Americans struggling to pay for gas and groceries know it’s a nightmare. Bidenomics is an absolute train wreck. Runaway government spending unleashed the highest levels of inflation in four decades and squeezed family budgets to the breaking point. Now hardworking Americans are paying more but getting less.

“Every lawmaker who set this train in motion should have to explain to their constituents why they voted to raise prices and greenlight Biden’s most reckless economic policies. As we learn from Biden’s costly economic mistakes, it’s time to demand better from our elected leaders, end the big government spending binge that has plagued our communities and once again prioritize the needs of hardworking Americans. We and the millions of voters we represent are committed to holding our leaders accountable, stopping runaway government spending, and showing a better path forward.”

The ads will run on digital and connected TV in the states and districts of 31 Members of Congress: Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT), Jacky Rosen (D-NV),  Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Bob Casey (D-PA) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI); and Reps. Mary Peltola (AK-AL), Greg Stanton (AZ-04), Josh Harder (CA-09), Mike Levin (CA-49), Yadira Caraveo (CO-08), Jahana Hayes (CT-05), Darren Soto (FL-09), Eric Sorenson (IL-17), Frank Mrvan (IN-01), Sharice Davids (KS-03), Jared Golden (ME-02), Dan Kildee (MI-08), Don Davis (NC-01), Chris Pappas (NH-01), Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11), Gabe Vasquez (NM-02), Susie Lee (NV-03), Steven Horsford (NV-04), Pat Ryan (NY-18), Greg Landsman (OH-01), Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Emilia Sykes (OH-13), Susan Wild (PA-07), Matt Cartwright (PA-08), Chris Deluzio (PA-17), and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA-03).
