The National Republican Congressional Committee launched an ad campaign on Thursday, calling out six House Democrats for voting against piecemeal bills to fund the government — a tactic opposed by the White House since it includes a demand to repeal or delay Obamacare.

Online banner ads point out that Reps. John Barrow (D-GA), Tim Bishop (D-NY), Julia Brownley (D-CA), Bill Enyart (D-IL), Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Nick Rahall (D-WV) voted against funding for programs like veterans benefits and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infant and Children.

The NRCC chalked the House Democrats’ votes up to partisan politics.

“These Democrats have turned their backs on low-income women and children, veterans, and FEMA funding – all due to their inability to put partisan politics aside,” Andrea Bozek, communications director for the NRCC said in a press release.
