Democrat lawmakers who are facong tough re-election in 2022 are under pressure over their support of the controversial coronavirus relief bill. According to reports Sunday, the conservative American Action Network is launching political ads in House districts with vulnerable Democrats who voted in favor of the $1.9 trillion stimulus.

The group is spearheading the Republican effort to take back the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterms. The ads point out that the nearly $2 trillion bill is giving money to government bureaucrats and big corporations while doing little for struggling families.

Similar ads are targeting at least nine other Democrat lawmakers in their districts in an effort to prevent further damage to the federal budget.

The bill, which has been denounced as a liberal wish list by Republicans, passed the Senate by razor-thin margins over the weekend in a 50-to-49 vote with no GOP support. It includes provisions such as $1,400 direct payments to most Americans and $300 weekly jobless benefits.

In the meantime, the American Action Network is reportedly increasing its previous ad buy to over six figures in order to fight back against the liberal agenda and restore order to Congress.
