AFP Launching $1.7 Million Ad Effort Targeting Four Lawmakers on ObamaCare

Share Article

Americans for Prosperity is holding two lawmakers accountable for their support of ObamaCare, while thanking two others who have steadfastly opposed the law.

A failing website is just the tip of the iceberg; less choice, higher premiums, and lost coverage will be the legacy of ObamaCare.

Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest advocate for health care freedom, announced a third wave of TV, radio, and web ads that highlight lawmakers' history of support or opposition to ObamaCare. The latest wave of TV ads starts today in Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, and West Virginia, and will run for the next three weeks.

AFP President Tim Phillips said, "Amid the inept rollout, it's important to remember that some politicians did what they could to stop ObamaCare, while others did whatever it took to push the law forward. Heading into 2014, we want to be sure Americans understand that ObamaCare will negatively impact a lot of people. A failing website is just the tip of the iceberg. We're already starting to see millions of Americans with less choice, higher premiums, and lost coverage."

This round of TV ads will thank Representatives Heck (NV-3) and Benishek (MI-1) for steadfastly opposing ObamaCare, and criticize Representatives Kirkpatrick (AZ-1) and Rahall (WV-3) for supporting the law. The cable and network TV spots will be supported by radio and web ads, as well as robust grassroots action in the districts that includes door-to-door canvassing and phone banking.

The budget for the latest round of ads is $1.7 million, bringing the total for AFP's efforts on ObamaCare accountability over $7.6 million.

Over the summer, AFP carried out a separate multi-million dollar effort with a series of four TV ads that highlighted some Americans' fears and concerns over the law's impact, which included reduced choice and access to health care.

This latest round of ads also highlights the group's Exempt Me, Too! message, reminding activists to tell lawmakers we can do better than ObamaCare. Hundreds of thousands of AFP activists have already signed a petition at justexempt.me, asking the President for the same special treatment that Big Business and the well-connected have already begun enjoying under the law.
