First Boehner Billboard Up, Second On the Way

Last month, PFAW Voters Alliance joined up with the AFL-CIO and Blue America PAC to host a contest to choose a billboard to grace a busy highway near House Minority Leader John Boehner’s home district. The winning concept is now a reality, by the side of a Cincinnati-area stretch of I-75:

The contest was such a success that we’ll be putting up a second billboard with the runner-up slogan:

Take a look at this segment on the first billboard from Cincinnati’s WLWT:

It’s not too late to contribute to the effort to confront Boehner on his home turf. You can find the billboard options here.

But first, let’s take a minute to remember why we’re putting up these billboards in the first place—and why it’s so important that Boehner doesn’t end up with more power in Congress than he already has. Just in the past two months, Boehner has:

  • Referred to the nation’s financial crisis as an insignificant “ant
  • Suggested that taxpayers bail out BP
  • Suggested that Congress not impose any new regulations on any industry (including, say, the oil industry) until there is an “emergency
  • Has repeatedly insisted on extending Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans without being able to explain how he would pay for it.

And that’s just what he could come up with during two summer months, in between rounds of golf.
