“Democrats would relish the opportunity to compare our ideas on the economy and jobs to the extreme tea party agenda that has come out of the House,” said Matt Canter, a spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. “They have yet to pass a jobs bill in the Republican House. Week after week, the Democratic Senate has tried to move forward.”
Added Canter, regarding the American Crossroads strategy: “If that’s what they think, that’s terrific news for Democrats.”
