Barber stance diminished “economic freedom and our health care choices,” says AFP director.
TUCSON — Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest advocate for health care freedom, announced the launch of a new television ad in Arizona’s 2nd congressional district holding Rep. Ron Barber accountable for his support of ObamaCare. The ad begins today and will run for three weeks on broadcast and cable. It will be supported by robust grassroots action across the state, including town hall meetings.
“Americans for Prosperity activists are out in force across the state, educating folks on the dangers of this legislation. Regardless of the weather in Washington, DC, we’re still on the ground fighting for every Arizonan to get their exemption from ObamaCare,” said AFP-Arizona State Director Tom Jenney. “This ad focusing on Rep. Barber is part of an effort to ensure that lawmakers are held accountable for serious votes that diminish our economic freedom and our health care choices. ObamCare does that and more.”
This latest round of ads also highlights the group’s Exempt Me, Too! message, reminding activists to tell Congress 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 legislation.
“Legislators who have consistently stood against ObamaCare deserve to be thanked for doing the right thing, and those responsible for bringing about this debacle need to be held accountable,” said AFP President Tim Phillips. “The result of ObamaCare so far has been diminished choice and higher premiums, accompanied by an astonishingly inept rollout that perfectly exemplifies the inefficiency of Big Government.”
