AFP Launches New $3 Million TV Ad Targeting ObamaCare
Columbus, OH – 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.
“We all hope that we will never have to go to the doctor but when we do, we share Tricia’s hope that we will have access to the best care in the world. Unfortunately, far too many Ohioans also share Tricia’s concern that the implementation of ObamaCare will mean a reduction in the quality of care available to them while the costs go up,” said Eli Miller, Americans for Prosperity Ohio State Director. “ObamaCare does not represent the affordable, accessible health care the President promised us.”
“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.
