Doug Sachtleben - April 18th, 2017

“Constituents of Reps. Black, Culberson, Rice, and Roby should urge their Representative to oppose the new BAT tax.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement about Club for Growth’s new TV and digital ad campaign urging four Republican lawmakers to oppose the Border Adjustment tax:

“All of the good progress Congress is poised to make on tax reform could be sunk if Republicans persist in creating a new trillion-dollar consumer tax,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “The BAT would drive up prices on everyday items for typical American families. Constituents in these four districts should urge their Representative to oppose the BAT, which would slam hard-working families with a massive new tax.”

The Club’s new ads are linked below. They will run on TV and digital platforms as part of a $500,000 ad buy starting today in the districts of the following House members:

TN-06            Rep. Diane Black

AL-02             Rep. Martha Roby

Doug Sachtleben - February 22nd, 2017

“Congresswoman Noem’s constituents need to know if she will fight for them and oppose the BAT.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement about a new Club for Growth TV and digital ad campaign that urges Congresswoman Kristi Noem (SD-AL) to oppose the Border Adjustment provision in the tax reform proposal put forth by House Republicans:

“The Border Adjustment Tax will drive up prices on everyday consumer goods like groceries, gas, clothes and shoes,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “House Republicans have offered good tax reform proposals, like lowering rates, repealing the Death Tax, and cleaning up the tax code, but the Border Adjustment Tax will hurt American families. Congresswoman Noem has a key position in Congress on tax policy and her constituents need to know if she will fight for them and oppose the BAT.”

The Club’s new ad can be seen here and will begin broadcasting statewide in South Dakota on February 22, with an ad buy of more than $150,000 for TV and digital outlets.

It is expected to be the first of a series of ads that the Club for Growth will air on the BAT tax in states and districts across the country.

Club for Growth Opposes GOP’s Proposed Consumer Tax

Doug Sachtleben - January 24th, 2017

“Pro-growth tax reform is not creating a new middle-class consumer tax to take the place of high corporate taxes.”

 Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to published comments by the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee on the border adjustment provision in the House Republicans’ tax reform plan:

“Pro-growth tax reform is not creating a new middle-class consumer tax to take the place of high corporate tax rates,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “There is no budget rule that requires Congress to raise one tax when it cuts another. House Republicans are already threatening to sacrifice pro-growth tax reform on the canard of revenue neutrality. Instead of trading one tax for another, the GOP needs to focus on cutting rates, and cutting spending and the size of government to match.”
