The progressive group Not One Penny just bought $250,000 in digital ads targeting 15 vulnerable House Republicans across the country who voted for the GOP tax bill, which could decimate medicare.

Why it matters: House Republicans voted yesterday to slash Medicare and CHIP funding, and now Democrats are using the top two issues voters care about to try to sour them on GOP candidates. The ads feature Ady Barkan, who is dying from ALS and who confronted Sen. Jeff Flake on a plane six months ago.
