The excessive federal spending spree MUST STOP ! --------------------- [FEB 2009]

American Issues Projects new ad highlights the failure of the pork-laden stimulus bill
to stimulate the economy.

Washington, DC February 20, 2009 American Issues Project launched a major television advertising campaign today spotlighting the excessive spending and pet projects within the far-reaching stimulus legislation, which the Congressional Budget Office has said will harm the American economy in the long term. The ad will begin running today on FOX News, CNN, CNN Headline News, CNBC and FOX Business Network.

Washington is, once again, out of touch with the American people, said Ed Martin, the organizations president. Congress has used the anxiety of the American people as a vehicle for appeasing special interest groups and financing their pork projects back home. This type of spending has no place within emergency legislation intended to jump-start the economy.

The ad also showcases examples of the billions spent on pork projects—including golf carts, fish hatcheries and remodeled federal offices—and targets liberal senator Charles Schumer for his claim on the Senate floor that the American people really dont care about porky amendments.

American Issues Projects ad examines assertions that the funding in the stimulus package will not help the economy, neither this year nor in the long term, according to economists and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

With this so-called stimulus bill, its the government that will grow, not the economy. The spending circus in Washington must stop before our politicians amass generational debt even further out of our control, said American Issues Project President Ed Martin.

The ad buy of nearly one million dollars starts airing Friday and urges concerned citizens to text ENOUGH to 97180 if they want to join the organization. An electronic version of the ad, plus full documentation for all statements made, is available at American Issues Projects website: http://www.americanissuesproject.org
