LANSING, Mich. -- Americans For Prosperity-Michigan is planning to purchase radio ads this summer to educate Michiganders on the votes that their lawmakers have taken. "A key part of AFP's mission is to educate citizens, and residents of Michigan deserve to know how their lawmakers vote," says Scott Hagerstrom, State Director of AFP-Michigan. "Their votes impact families and individuals in very big ways and while taxpayers are working to put food on the table, lawmakers have been making reforms that impact their health care, tax rates, and their schools."
LANSING, Mich.—On the heels of a crucial vote in the House Competitiveness Committee, the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity-Michigan urged state lawmakers to resist expanding Medicaid as allowed under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity, the largest free market grassroots organization, has launched a bold effort in Michigan and Pennsylvania to urge key state representatives and senators to vote against irresponsible and unaffordable expansion of Medicaid under President Obama’s health care law. Thousands of activists are expected to make calls to their lawmakers, and online ads will run carrying the message: “Medicaid is Bad Medicine.”
