The ads open with Ryan describing his budget as the GOP’s “vision” and an “expression of our governing philosophy,” before cutting to clips of pundits describing the policy as “Robin Hood in reverse” that would adversely affect “the poorest people in the country” while giving “huge tax cuts” to corporations and the highest earners.The NRCC's Andrea Bozek responded to the ad predictably:

The ads are targeting GOP Reps. Tim Griffin (Ark.), Tom Cotton (Ark.), David Valadao (Calif.), Gary Miller (Calif.) Mike Coffman (Colo.), Larry Bucshon (Ind.), John Kline (Minn.), Erik Paulsen (Minn.), Lee Terry (Neb.), Jon Runyan (N.J.), Michael Grimm (N.Y.), Tom Reed (N.Y.), David Joyce (Ohio), Jim Renacci (Ohio), Mike Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Scott Rigell (Va.) and Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.).

And never mind the fact that Democrats actually received well over one million more votes in House races in 2012 running against the Ryan Medicare proposal locally and against the Romney/Ryan economic plan nationally. They've got their vision and they're sticking to it.
