Keeping the pressure on, big-time...

In an amazingly even-handed, objective analysis, the NYTimes reports on the on-going massive TV ad campaign -- financed mostly by OLS heroes, the Koch Brothers -- directed at politically vulnerable, Obamacare supporting Democrat politicians (see here for a related OLS post).  And both the NYT and Dem political operatives acknowledge that the campaign is working:
Democrats are increasingly anxious about an onslaught of television ads hitting vulnerable Senate and House candidates for their support of the new health law, since many lack the resources to fight back in the early stages of the midterm campaign.

Since September, Americans for Prosperity, a group financed in part by the billionaire Koch brothers, has spent an estimated $20 million on television advertising that calls out House and Senate Democrats by name for their support of the Affordable Care Act.
As always, good on the Koch Brothers!
