AFP Takes Aim at Three Members of the Florida Delegation

On Thursday, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) announced it was targeting three members of the Florida congressional delegation--Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney and Democrats U.S. Reps. Stephanie Murphy and Debbie Wasserman Schultz--with a campaign hitting them for backing the $1.3 trillion omnibus in March.  

AFP plans to launch its Stop Overspending campaign with outreach through radio, direct mail, print ads and digital ads. Murphy represents a swing district and is a top Republican target in November while Wasserman Schultz is in a secure district for the Democrats and Rooney is retiring from Congress. 

Chris Hudson, AFP’s director in Florida, weighed in on the campaign. 

“Both Representatives Murphy and Wasserman Schultz once touted the need for reigning in our enormous deficits, but their vote for this enormous spending bill showed their calls for fiscal prudence were really a façade,” Hudson said. “Our country faces a large and growing fiscal problem, but this does not mean lawmakers should try to spend its way out of Washington’s dysfunction. We urge Floridians to contact Representatives Murphy and Wasserman Schultz and tell them to be better stewards of our taxpayer dollars and end the empty promises of restoring fiscal sanity in Washington.” 

AFP jabbed the three members of the delegation for backing the omnibus which pushed federal spending to more than $4 trillion for the first time and insisted it will be watching how they voter as the next federal budget takes shape. 

“AFP views the fall spending debate as a critical test for lawmakers and will be engaging grassroots activists throughout the summer to hold both parties accountable for reckless spending and stress the importance of getting spending under control,” the group insisted on Thursday. 

The group also noted that President Donald Trump expressed his disapproval of the omnibus bill even as he signed it.

Are you really this stupid? The legislature and executive office is currently run by one particular party. Why would AFP be singling out these silly few who had very little to do with the omnibus. Notice how they so nobly indicate Trump the Chump had serious reservations about signing it, BUT DID. That is political speak for, "we are making it happen, but we want you gullible idiots to blame someone else for it..." This has truly become the time of dumbing down America. Sad thing is, it worked...

Another person suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. You should get it checked out.

Take a look at the companion article in SSN --> "Stephanie Murphy, Brian Fitzpatrick Want to Hold Congress More Accountable to the American People" and then begin to understand why AFP might want to target her bipartisan efforts . . . . . . . .PATHETIC . . . .

Concentrate on getting rid of Wasserman-Schultz. She’s got a lot more to answer for. As head of the DNC shecheated to get Hillary nominated and had to resign in disgrace. She is a toady for Obama and does not side with Israel.

"AFP" - A Koch Bro's mouthpiece. "What's mine is mine, and what's yours is mine". "Our country faces a large and growing fiscal problem, but this does not mean lawmakers should try to spend its way out of Washington’s dysfunction." So why the major, recent GOP sponsored tax code revisions that just front loaded the country with $1.5 Trillion dollars debt over the next 10 years?
