“Tricia’s Story” starts today in six states including VA; highlights negative impact of ObamaCare
Richmond, 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.
“Obamacare, and specifically Medicaid expansion in Virginia, will hurt the folks who need the most help,” explained Dave Schwartz, Virginia State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “These health care policies will lead to longer waits, lower quality of care and the destruction of the doctor-patient relationship.”
“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.
