These days, big-spenders in Washington, D.C. rarely catch a break from fiscal conservatives, and Christmas is no exception.

Bankrupting America — a project of the fiscally conservative, non-partisan group Public Notice — released an ad this week featuring sparkling, shattered ornaments beneath a Christmas tree with the tagline, “Dropped Balls.” (RELATED: Group mocks fidelity and spending in Washington [VIDEO])

Highlighting their top five congressional screw-ups — the debt ceiling, the credit downgrade, the super committee failure, the lack of a legally required budget and the “failure to enact any of the 12 spending bills by their deadline” — the ad reads, “No one will ever accuse Congress of being smooth. But this year, they’ve been in rare form. From passing a budget to preserving our top notch credit rating, lawmakers have let a few costly things slip through their fingers. This holiday season, we’re calling them out.” (RELATED: Obamacare’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year)
