"Get Washington off our backs – Stop Big Government," Ad Urges

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with FRC Action, the lobbying arm of the Family Research Council, started a television ad campaign today against five members of Congress who have furthered a big government agenda to the detriment of American families. This $125,000 cable news ad buy is connected with the "20 in 10" campaign targeting those members of Congress who voted for business-crushing pieces of legislation, including the new health care law that allows for taxpayer funding of abortions.

The members of Congress currently targeted in the two week ad campaign are:

Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ-8)

Betsy Markey (D-CO-4)

Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH-1)

John Boccieri (D-OH-16)

Tom Perriello (D-VA-5)

The ad features a working-class American with a man in a suit hanging on his back, representing "big government."

The American says:

"I woke up one morning and it was there: big government on my back. It's a huge problem. It's affecting everyone. They're taking over our health care, using our money to bail out big business."

"Even our kids are in trouble," the ad continues, since the government is leaving trillions of dollars in debt for them to pay off.

It concludes: "Congress supported big health care, big bailouts, big debt. Get Washington off our backs – stop big government on Election Day."
