Ad Targeting House Dems: 'Obamacare Doesn't Work'

Americans for Prosperity has two new ads targeting House Democrats in swing districts, both of which make the case that Obamacare "doesn't work" and should be repealed. The first ad, running in New Hampshire, tells Democratic congresswoman Annie Kuster to "stop thinking about politics and start thinking about people." Watch it below:

"Millions of people have lost their health insurance. Millions of people can't see their own doctors. And millions are paying more and getting less," says the woman in the ad. "Obamacare doesn't work. It just doesn't work."

Kuster defeated Republican incumbent Charlie Bass in 2012 and is up for reelection in 2014.

The second ad is running in Minnesota and mentions Democratic congressman Rick Nolan. The ad charges that Obamacare is "hurting Minnesotans," including Randy Westby from North Branch. "I received notice that my current insurance was no longer qualified," says Westby. "I had three heartattacks in the last six years. Health care is something that's essential, and my life depends on it." Watch the ad below:

"Congressman Nolan, Obamacare needs to be repealed," Westby says. Nolan, who served a short stint in Congress in the late 1970's and early 1980's, defeated incumbent Republican Chip Cravaack in 2012. He is also up for reelection in 2014.

A new CNN poll released Thursday shows Republicans widening their lead over Democrats in the generic congressional ballot for next year's midterm elections.
