NRCC sets sights on congressmen for wasting billions

An ad released by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Tuesday targets Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Calif.) for not supporting a balanced-budget amendment, claiming his decision would "waste billions."

A post on the NRCC website says, "The ad puts into perspective the nation’s $14 trillion debt and highlights how Cardoza and his fellow congressional Democrats continue to spend money the American government does not have."

Tuesday’s ad is not the first time the NRCC has focused on Cardoza. In March, 2010 the committee released an ad critical of his vote on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
