The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) wants to remind Americans that the government spending is the problem.
The National Republican Congressional Committee will announce an online petition today urging House Democrats to say they don’t think a $1 trillion coin should be minted to pay down the debt. It’s an attempt to get some earned media ahead of the debt ceiling fight and center the conversation on the deficit. Seven Democrats will be targeted with customized releases (photos of their faces on $1 trillion coins), including Jim Matheson (UT-04), Mike McIntyre (NC-07), Collin Peterson (MN-07), Tim Walz (MN-01), Jerrold Nadler (NY-10) and Nick Rahall (WV-03).
The website is here.
Check it out and sign the petition.

Well, the GOP did retake the House last year (see graphic above) – so, you would expect good fundraising
from the special interests.
In the battle for control of the House of Representatives, the National Republican Congressional Committee has twice as much money in the bank as its Democratic counterpart.
The NRCC revealed late Monday that the party committee has $10.6 million cash on hand as of June 1, double the $5.3 million the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reported having in the bank as of the end of last month.
The NRCC reported raising $4.6 million in May and a debt of $7 million. The DCCC brought in $3.8 million last month, with a debt of $6.6 million. The NRCC points out that they have raised $26.8 million so far this year, nearly double what they raised in the first half of 2009.
The Democrats will need to win 24 seats to regain the majority in the House. But, with Rahm Emanuel gone (elected Mayor of Chicago) and moderate Democrats having been largely replaced by Republicans (those recruited by Emanuel) the Democrats will be hard pressed to win back the House in 2012.
The money gap will make it even more difficult and unlikely.

The GOP House offense begins today.
The NRCC will launch a recess ad offensive today, hitting Democrats in 43 districts for helping to “rubber stamp” spending bills for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), reports Roll Call.
Most of those 43 Democrats will be the target of robocalls flooding into their districts later this week, but nine Democrats will begin hearing NRCC radio ads in their district starting today.
About damn time….

If the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee (NRCC) wishes to CONTAIN their losses this November they must aggressively produce and campaign on a national agenda. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich the architect of the Contract with America and who successfully won GOP control of the House has produced one such plan.
The NRCC has two choices:
