The SEIU, NEA and AFSCME are launching a new round of ads pressuring potentially wishy-washy Democratic senators and Republican House members to oppose cuts to Medicare and Medicaid in fiscal cliff curb negotiations. The six-figure ad buy will target Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) and Pat Tiberi (R-OH).

"Cutting hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare and Medicaid will short change the people who need it the most," the ads say. "So if you donít want seniors to come up empty, call [lawmaker] and tell [him/her]'Don't make a bad deal that cuts our care.'"

An earlier round of ads also ran in Colorado, targeting the Democratic senators there, and in "several dozen" Republican House districts.
