Americans United Release Ads Blasting GOP for “Tea Party Shutdow (DonkeyHotey)

TEA PARTY SHUTDOWN:  Americans United for Change has released a series of ads blasting 10 House Republicans who “continue to throw out absurd ransom demands in exchange for doing their job and keeping the government functioning.”

The government shutdown, engineered by Tea Party extremists in the House over defunding Obamacare, is in its ninth day, with no end in sight.

Brad Woodhouse, president of Americans United said “refusing to support clean legislation to keep the government open at the 11th hour was the act of extortionist Tea Party Republicans plain and simple.”

The Republicans targeted in the ads are: Tom Latham (R-IA), Richard Hanna (R-NY), Dan Benishek (R-MI), Lou Barletta (R-PA), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Tim Walberg (R-MI), Sean Duffy (R-WI7), Bill Johnson (R-OH6), Andy Barr (R-KY), and Rodney Davis (R-IL).
