A coalition of groups supporting Obamacare has launched a $500,000 advertising blitz aimed at 24 congressional districts held by Republicans who helped push through the repeal and replace bill in the House, Politico is reporting.
Among the targets of the Save My Care coalition are Reps. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., Bruce Poliquin, R-Maine, Don Young, R-Alaska, and Mark Amodei, R-Nev., according to the website.
The five will be slammed by TV ads from the group, while digital advertising will focus on 19 other House GOP members who backed the bill, Politico reported.
The ads focus on the Congressional Budget Office's score of the original House bill, CBS News reported. The CBO had forecast 24 million people would lost their health coverage over the next decade.
One of the ads, aimed at McSally, was posted online by Save My Care. The 30-second spot starts off with a narrator saying: "Congresswoman McSally just voted for a disastrous health care repeal bill opposed by the American Medical Association, AARP and the American Cancer Society.
"McSally voted to raise your costs and cut coverage for millions, to let insurance companies deny affordable coverage for cancer treatment and maternity care, and charge five times more for people over 50."
The coalition had run television ads in early April in seven House districts criticizing Republicans for not taking a stand against the original GOP bill, Politico reported.
