Dem group keeps up budget attacks
Washington (CNN) - Eight members of Congress are the targets of ads, released Monday by the Democratic House Majority PAC, that criticize their votes on the House GOP budget proposal.

The six-figure ad buy from the independent expenditure group will run through Thursday as Democrats continue to hit Republicans over tax and Medicare proposals in the budget of Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee. The House passed that budget this year.

"House Republicans voted to end Medicare as we know it, while forcing seniors to pay as much as $6,400 more a year for the same health care coverage," Ali Lapp, the executive director of the House Majority PAC, said in a statement. "The House Majority PAC will continue holding Republicans accountable for their backwards priorities."
