TALLAHASSEE — Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest advocate for health care freedom, announced the launch of a new television ad in Florida’s 2nd congressional district thanking Rep. Steve Southerland for fighting against ObamaCare. The ad begins today and will run for three weeks on broadcast and cable. It will be supported by robust grassroots action in the district that includes door-to-door canvassing and phone banking.
“Americans for Prosperity is on the ground across the state, educating folks on the dangers of this law. Whether it’s town hall meetings or local canvassing, we’re continuing the effort to get every American their ObamaCare exemption,” said AFP-Florida State Director Slade O’Brien.
“We can’t merely call out the bad actors; true accountability also means recognizing those who stand with Floridians against ObamaCare. We commend Rep. Southerland for working tirelessly on behalf of Panhandle residents to rid us all of this disastrous law.”
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.
“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.”
