The Republican National Committee on Wednesday launched seven new web ads going after vulnerable Senate Democrats for their support of Obamacare.
Sens. Mark Begich (Alaska), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Mark Udall (Colo.) and Mark Warner (Va.) are each the recipients of personalized 40-second web spots. The ads cite last week’s Congressional Budget Office report, which drew significant attention for its analysis that the new health care law would result in approximately 2 million fewer workers starting in 2017.
“The Congressional Budget Office’s report confirms what we know already: Obamacare is bad for the economy and for workers,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement to TheBlaze. “It proves that Americans will suffer greatly from Obamacare: the equivalent of over 2 million workers will leave the workforce and millions of Americans will see smaller paychecks. These seven senators supported President Obama and his disastrous health care law, and they must be held accountable for discouraging people from working.”
Begich, Hagan, Landrieu, Pryor and Udall are considered particularly vulnerable heading into the November midterms this year, and individual polls have indicated Warner and Shaheen could face tough re-election bids.
