AFP Launches New $3 Million TV Ad Targeting ObamaCare
“Tricia’s Story” starts today in six states; highlights negative impact of ObamaCare
Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s leading free-market advocacy group, has released its latest installment in a series of ads targeting ObamaCare. Told from the perspective of Tricia, an AFP activist and two-time cancer survivor, the ad casts doubt on whether patients under ObamaCare would receive the kind of urgent, quality care that saved Tricia’s life. The ad starts today and will run through the first week of October throughout Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.
“Tricia’s Story is just the latest example of the deep concerns most Americans have about ObamaCare, and how it will impact their future,” said AFP President Tim Phillips.“Tricia fears that the impact of ObamaCare will be diminished access to the kind of timely, high quality care she relied on to save her life.
“The White House and taxpayer funded PR firms are out there touting how great the law is, but they neglect to mention the negative impact the law is already having on millions of Americans. We can’t sugarcoat reality if this is going to be an honest debate.”
Watch “Tricia’s Story” here:
“Tricia’s Story” is narrated by an AFP activist who credits her successful recovery from two forms of cancer to the excellent personal care of her doctors. She voices her personal concerns about the loss of patient freedom, bureaucratic involvement, and diminished choice she sees coming under the new healthcare law.
Tricia concludes, “I had the best care in the world, and I want the same for you.” The text on screen directs viewers to tell the White House they deserve better than ObamaCare.
This ad is the fourth in a series from AFP that feature personal stories to highlight the negative impact of ObamaCare. AFP state chapters have also been extremely active on the ground, hosting some 75 healthcare related events per month in August and September.
