Win McNamee/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Democrats have resurrected their attacks on Wisconsin Republican Congressman Paul Ryan well ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.

Last year, when Ryan was Mitt Romney’s pick as the GOP vice presidential nominee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) lambasted the lawmaker and his initial plan to trim $5.6 trillion from the federal budget over a decade, saying it would benefit the rich and hurt everyone else.

Democrats only picked up a handful of seats last November with Republicans still firmly in control of the House.  But the DCCC believes that it can severely harm GOP chances of retaining the House next year by tying lawmakers to their support for the Ryan budget.

The plan is to harp on Ryan’s goal to eventually privatize Medicare as well as repeal the Affordable Care Act.

To that end, the DCCC has already released a video on YouTube called “Paul Ryan’s Fantasy,” which shows some of his own party members expressing doubts about the budget while Democratic critics mock Republican attempts at jettisoning the healthcare law.

Comstock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — There’s good news Tuesday for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which oversees the 435 races in the House of Representatives.  The committee out-raised its Republican counterpart, the National Republican Congressional Committee, for the month of March.

The DCCC raised $9.8 million last month, about $500,000 more than the NRCC’s $9.3 million.

Despite losing the majority in the House of Representatives after the 2010 midterm elections, the DCCC has been out-raising its Republican opponents with some regularity, beating the NRCC for five months in a row.  Most political spectators credit the committee’s strong fundraising to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s proven talent for raising money.

But the NRCC has more cash on hand.  It has about $27.1 million while the DCCC is about $4 million behind, with $22.8 million.

Both committees reported having no debts.
