The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) rolled out a critical ad campaign targeting vulnerable House Democrats for their party’s proposal to increase the amount of information the IRS receives about banking transactions.

The 19-second Halloween-themed ad accuses Democrats of “hiring an army of IRS agents to spy on your bank account.” The ad campaign targets 15 House Democrats, including Reps. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), Tom O’Halleran (D-Ariz.), Katie Porter (D-Calif.), Jahana Hayes (D-Conn.), Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), Marie Newman (D-Ill.), Jared Golden (D-Maine), Dan Kildee (D-Mich.), Chris Pappas (D-N.H.), Andy Kim (D-N.J.), Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.), Antonio Delgado (D-N.Y.), Susan Wild (D-Penn.), and Kim Schrier (D-Wash.).

The NRCC noted that its internal polling found that 57 percent of voters said they would be less likely to support a Democrat who backed the proposal.

The proposal would require banks to report to the IRS the total amount of money that came in and out of an account during a year. The IRS would not receive information about specific transactions. Democrats and Biden administration officials argue that the proposal would help the IRS enforce tax laws against wealthy tax cheats.

However, some Democrats in the House and the Senate, including Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), have expressed concerns over how Americans’ privacy would be impacted by the proposal.

The ad comes after the NRCC released new internal polling on Tuesday showing Republicans on track to retake the House in 2022. Republicans have a 43 percent to 40 percent lead over Democrats with registered voters in the generic ballot across 85 potential battleground districts, according to the poll.
