Democrats launch ads criticizing GOP on sequester

Democrats are coming after Republicans, launching ads Thursday criticizing them for not acting to stop the automatic spending cuts that go into effect March 1.

Ads will run in 27 House of Representatives districts represented by Republicans.

"There are real-world consequences for middle class families because of House Republicans’ dysfunction and chronic chaos,” said Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

“For the defense workers who may get pink slips, the federal law enforcement officers who may be furloughed, and the FBI agents and the food inspectors who are looking at layoffs, they will be reminded that those pink slips have been brought to hardworking Americans by this Tea Party Republican Congress. It is time for House Republicans to come back to work to avert this crisis, stop protecting tax breaks for special interests and corporations – and stand up for the middle class.”

Here are the 27 congressmen the ads are targeting:


  • ·         Andy Barr (KY-06)
  • ·         Dan Benishek (MI-01)
  • ·         Tom Cotton (AR-04)
  • ·         Rick Crawford (AR-01)
  • ·         Mike Coffman (CO-06)
  • ·         Steve Daines (MT-AL)
  • ·         Rodney Davis (IL-13)
  • ·         Jeff Denham (CA-10)
  • ·         Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-08)
  • ·         Chris Gibson (NY-19)
  • ·         Tim Griffin (AR-02)
  • ·         Michael Grimm (NY-11)
  • ·         Joe Heck (NV-03)
  • ·         Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA-03)
  • ·         David Joyce (OH-14)
  • ·         John Kline (MN-02)
  • ·         Tom Latham (IA-03)
  • ·         Gary Miller (CA-31)

  • ·         Tom Reed (NY-23)
