Concerned that lawmakers are trying to pay for a transportation bill with speculative oil and gas revenues, Taxpayers for Common Sense Action is airing radio ads in 12 House districts asking constituents to tell their representatives to oppose the bill. The buy is relatively small, in the mid-five figures.

The ad says: "America has real transportation needs and we also have real budget problems. This week Congress votes on a $260 billion transportation bill and the politicians are using speculative revenue to pay for it. But no one knows if this money will ever exist. And if it doesn't, taxpayers will foot the bill. Isn't this the same irresponsibility that created our budget mess?"

The dozen targets are Republican Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Paul Broun of Georgia, Jason Chaffetz of Utah, Tom Graves of Georgia, Morgan Griffith of Virginia, Richard Hanna of New York, Steve King of Iowa, Tom Price of Georgia, Dennis Ross of Florida, Austin Scott of Georgia and Rob Woodall of Georgia.
