AFP Continues Holding Politicians Accountable with ObamaCare Ad Effort

October 29, 2013

Arlington, VA — Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest advocate  for health care freedom, announced the next wave in a multi-million dollar  effort that uses network and cable TV, radio, and web ads to hold politicians  accountable for their support of ObamaCare. The new TV ads will focus on the  troubling record of Sens. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.), and show  how ObamaCare is already hurting millions of American families.

“Lawmakers who have actively worked to bring about the disastrous ObamaCare  law need to be held accountable,” said AFP President Tim Phillips. “Senators  Hagan and Landrieu have steadfastly supported this costly, Big Government  nightmare that has reduced choice, raised premiums, and led to the cancellation  of health care plans for millions of Americans.”

The cable and network TV spots will run across Louisiana and North Carolina  for several weeks. They’ll be supported by radio and web ads, as well as robust  grassroots action in each state, including door-to-door canvassing and phone  banking. Last week, AFP launched similar ads in several House districts across  the country (Click  here for more information).

“AFP has consistently worked on behalf of our members, helping them voice  their frustration over the airwaves as well as on the ground,” continued  Phillips. “Our message is clear and simple: politicians who get to Washington  and join the Big Government club should expect to be held accountable, and those  who stand on the side of the public can count on millions of AFP activists to  have their backs. We know this will take a serious, sustained effort, and we’re  committed to victory in the long term.”

Over the summer, AFP carried out another multi-million dollar effort with a  series of four TV ads that highlighted the negative  impact of ObamaCare on individuals and doctors.

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,  asking the President for the same special treatment that Big Business, Congress  and the well-connected have already begun enjoying under the law.
