Americans for Prosperity – Indiana (AFP-IN) is launching a statewide effort to put grassroots pressure on Joe Donnelly. Donnelly’s votes for increased government spending and higher taxes will be the focus of the effort. The grassroots project is channeled through the website www.HowsThatCupofJoe.com. The website educates Hoosiers on the failed economic policies supported by Congressman Donnelly, and a petition so Hoosiers can contact Donnelly directly.
In addition, AFP-Indiana’s field coordinators will be organizing AFP-Indiana’s 25,000 grassroots activists to make phone calls and knock on doors in order to share this information with their fellow Hoosiers and get them to contact Donnelly in the weeks and months ahead.
“Joe Donnelly’s votes for government-run health care, increased spending and higher taxes is something that every Hoosier should be aware of,” stated Chase Downham, Indiana State Director of Americans for Prosperity.
“We are going to work hand-in-hand with grassroots activists across our state to put pressure on Joe Donnelly, and remind him that Hoosiers oppose the runaway spending and increased debt that is all too common in Washington, D.C.”
Joe Donnelly voted for the $2 trillion government takeover of health care, $1 trillion failed stimulus efforts and voted against a permanent repeal of the death tax at the federal level.
