Three new radio ads take aim at three House Democrats, using their support for Obamacare against them.

The radio ads target Reps. Nick Rahall of West Virginia, Scott Peters of California, and Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire.

"Think Barack Obama and Nick Rahall are different?" the voice-over says about the 19-term congressman. "Listen to this."

Story continues below video.



Then a clip of the president is played: "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan."

"Rahall said it, too," the voice-over says.

"Those who like what they have today, they'll be able to keep," Rahall says.

"The same broken promise," the voice-over adds before detailing how Obamacare has affected West Virginia.

"Now almost 9,000 West Virginians are losing health coverage, even worse, they think that's a good thing," the voice-over says before another clip of Obama plays.

"Most of the folks who got cancellation letters will end up being better off," Obama says.

"Those that are receiving cancellation letters today, that may be in their best interest, long term, to be canceled," Rahall says, in another clip.

The Peters and Shea-Porter ads are similar. The three representatives are up for re-election in 2014 in what are expected to be tough races.

The National Republican Congressional Committee released all three radio ads. The NRCC spent about $15,000 on the ad against Rahall, $17,000 on Peters ad. and $20,000 on the ad going after Shea-Porter.

All three lawmakers voted for a House bill that would allow insurers to sell plans that were canceled under the new healthcare law.
