The calls target Reps. C.W. Bill Young, R-Indian Shores, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Miami. President Obama won both districts in 2012, though Young and Ros-Lehtinen have consistently voted against the health care law. "The DCCC is paying for automated phone calls so the people of Florida can connect with Congressman Young and demand that he stand up against House Republican leadership and move forward and strengthen our health care, not join the partisans in Congress who want to put insurance companies back in charge," the organization said. "The DCCC obviously didn’t get the memo that the IRS-enforced train wreck that is ObamaCare is so devastating that even Democrats are trying to run as fast as they can away from their earlier support of the law," said National Republican Congressional Committee spokeswoman Katie Prill. "If the DCCC thinks it is going to reclaim the speakership for Nancy Pelosi by touting ObamaCare, they're in for a big surprise in 2014."
