Conservative group targeting House Democrats over SALT positions

Heritage Action is targeting a handful of House Democrats in a new ad campaign over their support for raising the State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction cap.

The conservative group announced on Tuesday that it is spending $1.25 million on digital and TV ads to target Democratic Reps.  Carolyn Bourdeaux (Ga.), Cindy Axne (Iowa), Jared Golden (Maine), Elissa Slotkin (Mich.) and Susie Lee (Nev.).

“Nancy Pelosi slipped a big tax break for her wealthy friends into Biden’s bloated spending bill. The rich get tax breaks on their Hamptons beach houses and Malibu mansions. And you pay the bill. With crushing taxes on small businesses and skyrocketing inflation, raising prices for gas and groceries, the coastal elites get an insider sweetheart deal on their taxes, and you pay more,” a narrator says in the 30-second ads

President Biden’s Build Back Better spending plan, which he is working to get passed in Congress, includes an increase in the SALT deduction cap. 

Heritage Action has spent more than $2 million in ads opposing the $1.75 trillion legislation. 

“Democrats actively work to divide Americans along every conceivable line and then deliver campaign promises to certain Americans in those divisions. But behind closed doors, they work to pay off coastal elites in blue states,” Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson said in a statement announcing the ads Tuesday.

“This provision is just the latest of hundreds of dangerous and divisive elements of the Biden tax and spending agenda. Heritage Action will continue to hold liberal politicians accountable and expose their Build Back Broke agenda for what it truly is,” she added.
