Ads Target Members of Congress and Highlight Impact of Reconciliation on America’s Rapidly Rising Inflation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched an aggressive paid advertising campaign in opposition to the multi-trillion-dollar reconciliation bill that poses a significant threat to the American economy.
“The partisan, multi-trillion-dollar reconciliation bill would accelerate inflation and stop America’s fragile economic recovery in its tracks,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne P. Clark. “With inflation at a 31-year high and employers struggling to fill a record number of job openings, Members of Congress must reject proposals that would harm American businesses and consumers and threaten our future prosperity.”
The latest round of Chamber advocacy targets Member of Congress in Washington, D.C. and back at home in their respective districts, urging them to consider the impact that higher inflation due to reconciliation will have on American families. The campaign includes patch-through calls, connecting constituents directly with their Members, as well as digital, mobile billboard, and print advertising – including ads on the Washington Post that will be delivered to every House and Senate office. The ads direct audiences to visit USChamber.com/inflation for more information.
The Chamber has previously run paid television ads that aired in districts around the country, appealing to voters who understand the perils of raising taxes as the nation seeks to recover from the pandemic. The ads, which can be viewed here, targeted key Congressional districts and future rounds may include more districts.
Last week, the Chamber sent a letter to Members of Congress, urging them to seek a complete accounting of the budgetary and economic impacts of the current reconciliation bill.
