As the health care vote in the house nears, lawmakers on both sides are playing hardball and pointing fingers.

Democrats are trying to muster enough votes to get a bill on President Barack Obama's desk soon.

Two Valley congressmen, Jim Costa and Dennis Cardoza remain undecided. A new ad aims to change that.

The ad from the Services Employee International Union specifically targets Jim Costa, and asks supporters to contact his office. And on Wednesday, his phone lines were flooded.

Valley supporters of health care reform say Costa and Cardoza have no choice but to vote yes.
