A new ad from Crossroads GPS, titled "Basketball," depicts a mom watching her young children play basketball--then watching them years later, as adults, still living at home and without jobs. "Obama added almost $16,000 in debt for every American," the voiceover says. "How will my kids pay that off when they can't even find jobs?" Watch the ad below:

The ad, backed by nearly $10 million in TV buys, will air in several swing states, including Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
