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.
