Liberal group funds $500K in attack ads after healthcare vote

A liberal healthcare group is putting more than $500,000 behind attack ads aimed at 24 GOP lawmakers who voted for the party's plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare last week. 

The new ad from progressive group Save My Care blasts the plan as "disastrous," noting the opposition of key groups such as the American Medical Association and AARP. It also leans on a previous analysis by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, which found that 24 million people would lose insurance under the plan.
 
While the CBO hasn't had time to score the new legislation, it did score an earlier version in March.

The mixture of digital and television ads are the latest spending by liberal groups looking to tar vulnerable Republican lawmakers for supporting the controversial bill, which narrowly passed the House past Thursday.
 
Democrats hope that the bill's passage in the House could shift the playing field to their advantage ahead of the 2018 midterms, and many of the lawmakers targeted are the more vulnerable House Republicans.
