A group opposed to the GOP's efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare is set to a launch a $1.5 million ad campaign on Monday urging five key Republican senators to vote against the chamber's expected healthcare bill.
In a television ad airing in each senator's state except for Arizona, a young boy is seen having an asthma attack, while his mother rushes for his inhaler.
In a radio ad, which is set to air in Alaska, Nevada, Arizona and West Virginia, a woman says that the Republican healthcare bill would cut healthcare and social services for senior citizens, leaving her unable to take care of her elderly parents.
Each state targeted in the ad, except for Maine, accepted the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion.
But Senate Democrats and some Republicans have complained that the legislation has largely been crafted behind closed doors, leaving lawmakers unaware of what they would be voting for.
