(AP) A conservative group is airing television and radio ads urging Democrats to eliminate funding for President Barack Obama's health care law to resolve a government shutdown.


The Senate Conservatives Fund accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and fellow Democrats of "forcing a government shutdown" in order to allow the so-called Obamacare system to move forward. The ad buy is expected to be about $500,000 per week.


Democrats have rejected efforts to pull funding for the health care law and want a stand-alone, short-term spending bill to reopen the government.


Some Republicans are seeking a one-year delay in the health care law's requirement for individuals to purchase health insurance.


The Senate Conservatives Fund has aired ads in the past critical of Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.
