SEIU will join the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and the National Education Association (NEA) in targeting Reps. Rick Crawford (R-AK), Mike Coffman (R-CO), John Fleming (R-LA), Erik Paulsen (R-MN), and Scott Rigell (R-VA).

The ad comes at an unusual moment in the fiscal cliff debate, when President Obama has agreed in principle to include one up-front cut to Social Security in an emerging deal with Boehner, but Boehner, facing a restive House conference, is weighing an alternative plan that would include only modest tax rate increases on millionaires and no entitlement cuts whatsoever.

The ad, which you can view below, launches Wednesday and will run through the weekend.
