Well, that didn't take long. Two days after Republicans in the Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce Committees voted to repeal and replace Obamacare, they're now being targeted by social media ads accusing them of doing things like voting to "strip away health care" from their constituents.

Save My Care, a grassroots coalition of health care advocates, is launching the five-figure ad buy, which will run the ads on social media and encourage voters to demand their representatives change their position before the bill reaches the House floor.

Who's being targeted: 13 members of the two committees.

  • Chris Collins of New York
  • Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania
  • Carlos Curbelo of Florida
  • Leonard Lance of New Jersey
  • Pat Meehan of Pennsylvania
  • Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania
  • Erik Paulsen of Minnesota
  • Dave Reichert of Washington
  • Jim Renacci of Ohio
  • Pete Roskam of Illinois
  • Pat Tiberi of Ohio
  • Tim Walberg of Minnesota
  • Mimi Walters of California

Many are the same members who have already been targeted in town halls, and all are from purple or blue states. The ads look like this:

Similar social media ads will appear in all the targeted districts.

This is just the beginning. Expect much, much more like this to come. Health care policy is painful. And recess is coming, meaning more brutal town halls.

Digging into Trump's taxes

President Trump paid no federal income tax in 10 of the past 15 years, and just $750 in 2016 and 2017, according to a new report from the New York Times. He also is reported to have hundreds of millions of dollars in outstanding debts, most of which would come due during a second term.

Axios Re:Cap focuses on what is and isn't surprising about the revelations, plus how real estate developers are taxed, with Francine McKenna, an independent financial journalist and certified public accountant.

Pennsylvania GOP asks Supreme Court to halt mail-in ballot extension

Republicans in Pennsylvania on Monday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt a major state court ruling that extended the deadlines for mail-in ballots to several days after the election, The Morning Call reports.

Why it matters: It's the first election-related test for the Supreme Court since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and could decide the fate of thousands of ballots in a crucial swing state that President Trump won in 2016. What the court decides could signal how it would deal with similar election-related litigation in other states.
