Club for Growth Urging Four GOP Lawmakers to Oppose New Consumer Tax

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

SC-07             Rep. Tom Rice

TX-07             Rep. John Culberson

 “Not on Our Side”

Republican Congresswoman Diane Black – She voted for trillions of dollars in debt and Obama’s Green Energy programs.

Now, Black refuses to oppose a trillion-dollar consumer tax on American families.

It could cause the price of gas, clothes, food, and school supplies to skyrocket, costing the average Tennessee family up to $1,700 more every year.

Congresswoman Black is not on our side.

Tell her to oppose the new BAT consumer tax.

“Basically All Things”

Congressman John Culberson wasn’t shy about voting to raise his own pay seven times.

But, he’s strangely quiet about a trillion-dollar tax hike Congress is cooking up.

Dealmakers in Congress call it the B-A-T tax.

It’s a new tax on Basically All Things: gas, clothes, groceries, even school supplies.

B-A-T would cost Texas families $1,700 a year.

Tell Congressman Culberson to oppose the B-A-T tax.

B-A-T is B-A-D for you.
