The U.S. Chamber on Thursday released the first two television advertisements in its new push for tax reform.

{mosads}One of the advertisements makes the case that Democrats shouldn’t seek to limit the offshore tax deals known as inversions retroactively.

“They want to go back in time and retroactively rewrite the tax laws,” the ad says. “It sounds crazy, but it’s true.”

The other spot makes a more general case for tax reform, highlighting the U.S.’s high corporate tax rate. “To level the playing field, we need to update our outdated tax laws,” the ad says.

The Chamber says Fair Reform for Growth, which it launched last week, will be a multimillion-dollar campaign. Tax reform efforts stalled this year, despite the efforts of key tax writers in both chambers.

A spokeswoman for the Chamber called the ad buy for the two spots “significant. The advertisements will appear on cable news networks in the Washington area, and nationwide on the network Sunday morning news shows.
