Democrats Bash Ryan in Ads Targeting 17 GOP House Members

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is targeting 17 Republican House members it feels are vulnerable with online ads that tie them to their support for House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s plan to balance the budget with deeper spending cuts and entitlement reforms.

The ads, unveiled Monday on YouTube, attempt to get across the message that the Ryan plan to balance the budget in 10 years does so at the expense of the middle class and senior citizens while helping the rich.

“Help the rich get richer. Soak the middle class and seniors,” the ad says.

The National Republican Congressional Committee was unimpressed with the ad and challenged the Democrats to take their best shot in next year’s mid-term elections.

“If Democrats believe they are going to win Republican House districts on a platform of touting support for Obamacare and a budget plan that never ever balances, then please, hit the campaign trail,” NRCC spokeswoman Andrea Bozek told The Hill newspaper.

“In 2012, Republicans won our second-largest House majority since World War II, precisely because Democrats are in denial about our nation’s spending problem and Obamacare’s job-destroying taxes.”

Targeted Republicans are: Tim Griffin and Tom Cotton of Arkansas; David Valadao and Gary Miller of California; Mike Coffman of Colorado; Larry Bucshon of Indiana; John Kline and Erik Paulsen of Minnesota; Lee Terry of Nebraska; Jon Runyan of New Jersey; Michael Grimm and Tom Reed of New York; David Joyce and Jim Renacci of Ohio; Mike Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania; Scott Rigell of Virginia; and Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington.
