Democrats Have Already Turned the House Vote on Trumpcare into a Devastating New Attack Ad

Democrats are ramping up their efforts to take back the House in 2018 with a series of scathing attack ads on vulnerable Republicans who voted for the American Health Care Act.

The bill offers virtually no coverage for people with preexisting conditions and is set to leave up to 24 million Americans uninsured. Save My Care, the group behind the ad campaign, asks simply, "How could you do this to us?"  

24 GOP House members have been targeted by the advocacy group's half-a-million-dollar television and digital ad campaign unveiled Monday:

  • Don Young (AK-01)
  • Martha McSally (AZ-02)
  • Jeff Denham (CA-10)
  • David Valadao (CA-21)
  • Steve Knight (CA-25)
  • Mimi Walters (CA-45)
  • Darrell Issa (CA-49)
  • Brian Mast (FL-18)
  • Carlos Curbelo (FL-26)
  • David Young (IA-03)
  • Peter Roskam (IL-06)
  • Bruce Poliquin (ME-02)
  • Tim Walberg (MI-07)
  • Jason Lewis (MN-02)
  • Erik Paulsen (MN-03)
  • Don Bacon (NE-02)
  • Tom MacArthur (NJ-03)
  • Mark Amodei (NV-02)
  • Lee Zeldin (NY-01)
  • John Faso (NY-19)
  • Elise Stefanik (NY-21)
  • Pete Sessions (TX-32)
  • Scott Taylor (VA-02)
  • David Brat (VA-07)

Meanwhile, the center-right American Action Network has launched its own $500,000 buy, which will advocate for those same Republicans on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” and Fox News' “Fox & Friends."
