DCCC hits 10 Republicans on Obamacare repeal vote

The House on Thursday voted to repeal ObamaCare in a largely party-line 229-195 vote.

The bill won't become law with Democrats in charge of the Senate and President Obama in the White House, but the GOP sees it as hurting Democrats in next year's midterm elections. 

The DCCC charged that the vote cost Americans $50 million in taxpayer dollars.

“There’s no telling how much time and money House Republicans will waste on their backwards repeal effort, but Americans have lost their patience,” said Jesse Ferguson, communications director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

"Americans don’t want to put insurance companies back in charge of our care, but that hasn’t stopped Republicans from making 37 costly attempts to repeal vital consumer protections. It’s clear that as long as House Republicans are in charge, they’ll keep fighting the same ideological battles and obstructing progress" he added.

The ads are running in the districts of GOP Reps. Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Michael Grimm (N.Y.), Joe Heck (Nev.), Frank LoBiondo (N.J.), Gary Miller (Calif.), Steve Pearce (N.M.), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.), Jon Runyan (N.J.), David Valadao (Calif.) and Bill Young (Fla.).

The DCCC targeted the same 10 Republicans prior to the vote with robo-calls urging voters to oppose lawmakers who vote to "deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, raise prescription drug costs, [and] kick kids off their parents' healthcare before they turn 26."
