Save My Care, a group working to defend Obamacare, is expanding its attack ads against Republicans who voted in favor of a bill to repeal and replace the healthcare law.
The ads will appear on TV, online and on the radio, as well as on mobile billboards that will drive through representatives' districts. One mobile billboard criticizing Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., for leading the Obamacare repeal vote will circle a Columbus, Ohio, event scheduled for Wednesday.
"Each of the billboards remind constituents that their members of Congress voted to take away their health care to fund a $400 billion tax giveaway to wealthy Americans and corporations," Save My Care said in a statement.
Earlier in the week, Save My Care announced TV and digital ads in 24 Congressional districts around the country. The latest additions will target Ohio GOP Reps. Jim Renacci, Pat Tiberi and Steve Chabot. Online newspaper ads will target Renacci, McSally and Rep. Bruch Poliquin, R-Maine, directing users to call their members of Congress.
House Republicans last week narrowly voted to pass the American Health Care Act, a bill that would repeal and replace portions of Obamacare. No Democrats supported the bill, and the Senate is currently working on writing its own version. Previous estimates have shown that if the American Health Care Act became law then it would result in an increase in the number of uninsured by 24 million by 2026 and would reduce spending on Medicaid, which covers low-income Americans, by $880 billion. It would repeal all Obamacare taxes that help pay for expanding coverage under the law.
"The campaign will make sure their constituents know about their reckless votes to endanger the care of American working families," Save My Care said in a statement.
The group also is partnering with National Council of La Raza Action Fund, a Latino advocacy organization, to release online and radio ads about the votes in favor of the American Health Care Act by GOP Reps. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., Mark Amodei, R-Nev., and Martha McSally, R-Ariz.
