Today the RNC launches our #FireReid campaign.
Under the control of Harry Reid, the U.S. Senate has failed to listen to the American people and do what’s in their best interest. In fact, the U.S. Senate has failed to do much of anything that doesn’t serve Harry Reid’s quest to remain in power.
For example, the Republican-led House of Representatives has passed over 290 bills, including 40 jobs bills, that are stuck Harry Reid’s Senate. He won’t put them to a vote, even though they could put Americans back to work.
Likewise, Harry Reid has refused to let his Republican colleagues introduce amendments to legislation, a normal part of the lawmaking process. It’s his way or the highway. Or more accurately, it’s billionaire SuperPAC donor Tom Steyer’s way or the highway.
So it’s time to fire Reid, and the only way to do that is to vote for Republican Senate candidates this fall. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for Harry Reid.
If you want to see Washington, DC, pass legislation to create jobs, it’s time to fire Reid.
If you want to build the Keystone Pipeline, it’s time to fire Reid.
If you want affordable energy, it’s time to fire Reid.
If you want to put an end to the headaches, high prices, and frustrations of ObamaCare, it’s time to fire Reid.
If you want to hold the president accountable for ignoring Congress, undermining the Constitution, and unilaterally rewriting laws, it’s time to fire Reid.
If you want to end the dysfunction in the U.S. Senate, it’s time to fire Reid.
The RNC will take this message to Senate races across the country. Beginning this week, we will launch robocalls in Alaska, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia. Those calls will tell voters that the only way to stop Obama is to vote Republican and fire Reid. The calls will remind them that a vote for their respective Democrat Senate candidate is a vote to rubberstamp the failed Obama-Reid agenda.
The ongoing Fire Reid campaign will use a variety tactics, including research briefings, social media, videos, interviews, and infographics to highlight where Harry Reid, empowered by a Democrat majority, has failed Americans: ineffectual leadership, ethical lapses, gridlock, ObamaCare, Keystone, and more.
The message is simple: if you want to get America moving in the right direction, you have to fire Reid in November.
