A conservative super-PAC has launched a radio ad campaign slamming GOP Reps. John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise for negotiating a trillion-dollar spending bill that funds President Obama’s “unlawful” executive actions on immigration reform.

Senate Conservatives Action, a super PAC affiliated with Senate Conservatives Fund, is airing the radio ads for one week in the three GOP leaders’ congressional districts.

“Over the past week, freedom-loving Americans from across the country pledged to donate over $117,000 to hold these leaders accountable if they voted to fund the president’s amnesty. The three radio ads released today carry out those pledges,” the group said on their website.

“Instead of fighting to defend the Constitution, Speaker John Boehner schemed with the Democrat-controlled Senate to rush through a massive spending bill that fully funded Obamacare and the president’s unlawful amnesty,” one ad says, The Hill reported.

Each ad urges constituents to call the leaders’ local offices to complain about the legislation.

“Americans asked Republican leaders to defund the president’s unlawful amnesty and pledged to run ads against them if they didn’t,” SCF President Ken Cuccinelli said in a statement. “Unfortunately, these leaders didn’t listen so now the grassroots are taking action to hold them accountable.”
