A group backed by billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch unveiled a television and digital campaign Wednesday that claims “corporate welfare” threatens Republican efforts to dramatically alter the U.S. tax code.

The Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce is targeting the politically powerful National Association of Realtors for opposing a proposal by the White House and Republican lawmakers to double the standard deduction, as well as several entities that represent renewable and energy efficiency interests advocating other tax incentives. The groups are “jeopardizing tax reform,” the Koch-backed group said in a statement.
