DCCC reserves $1.65M against Bilbray, attacks 23 House Republicans on tax cuts

Democrats want to end the Bush rates on families with income above $250,000, but the ads attack Republicans for extending the rates for millionaires. 

The ads specifically argue this would give those making $1 million another $130,000 in tax cuts, since their tax rates would not be raised.

"So Republicans want to give you, the millionaire, another tax break — all while charging seniors $6,000 more for Medicare," the Web ads say as images of private jets and yachts flash across the screen, followed by pictures of middle-class Americans. "This guy? Her? They don’t need it. They'll just buy groceries and pay the mortgage."

The targets: GOP Reps. Rick Crawford (Ark.), Dan Lungren (Calif.), Jeff Denham (Calif.), Mary Bono Mack (Calif.), Brian Bilbray (Calif.), Steve King (Iowa), Judy Biggert (Ill.), Bobby Schilling (Ill.), Larry Bucshon (Ind.), Roscoe Bartlett (Md.), Vicky Hartzler (Mo.), Jon Runyan (N.J.), Joe Heck (Nev.), Michael Grimm (N.Y.), Nan Hayworth (N.Y.), Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Ann Marie Buerkle (N.Y.), Bill Johnson (Ohio), Mike Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Tim Murphy (Pa.), Kristi Noem (S.D.), Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.) and Scott Rigell (Va.).

That list covers a number of toss-up targets like Lungren, Schilling and Bartlett, as well as some Republicans who will probably win, like Crawford, Murphy and DesJarlais.
