DCCC hits seven House Republicans on healthcare ahead of repeal vote


The Web ads tout the more popular parts of the law — parents' ability to keep their children on their insurance plans until age 26, coverage for preventive screenings and pre-existing conditions — and slams the members for supporting the law's repeal.

The targets: Reps. Dan Lungren (Calif.), Mary Bono Mack (Calif.), Robert Dold (Ill.), Judy Biggert (Ill.), Bobby Schilling (Ill.), Nan Hayworth (N.Y.) and Chris Gibson (N.Y.). The trio of Illinois Republicans and Lungren are the most vulnerable on the list, according to The Hill's House Race Ratings.

"Carla knows the breast cancer screening she got saved her life. Carla doesn't know that her congresswoman, Bono Mack, may vote to repeal the law that added preventative coverage to Medicare. But she might," says the female narrator in the ad against Bono Mack. "Your member of Congress may vote to repeal important healthcare benefits for everyday Americans. But she protected generous health plans for Congress at taxpayer expense. Tell Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack: She shouldn't repeal our benefits if she wants to keep hers."
