Ads highlight big-government policies under Sens. Landrieu, Pryor.

Arlington, Va. — Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s foremost grassroots advocate for economic freedom, announced the launch of major new efforts in Louisiana and Arkansas. The group is launching TV and digital ads aimed at educating the public on the big-government records of Senators Mark Pryor and Mary Landrieu. The ads feature diverse messages on health care, energy, taxes and spending.

In Louisiana, AFP is launching two spots, “Veterans Speak Out,” and “Clout.” In “Veterans Speak Out,” a group of military veterans urge Senator Mary Landrieu to fix their health care system before pushing ObamaCare on the rest of the country. These Americans question how ObamaCare could work for a whole country when the government can’t provide quality care for 8 million vets.

“Clout” documents the job-killing, cost-hiking regulations that the EPA has proposed in spite of Senator Landrieu’s assertions that she has pull in Washington when it comes to energy policy.

In Arkansas, Americans for Prosperity is launching an ad that highlights the struggle of Arkansans who are out of work while costs of living increase and our national debt threatens the economy.

View “Maybe It’s You” here:

“Americans for Prosperity is continuing to hold these senators accountable for their big-government records that hurt hard-working families who just want to secure a better future. People shouldn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck because government bureaucrats believe our energy or health care bills should be higher. They shouldn’t have to worry about the debts their children will owe because elected officials keep voting for more government overspending. 

“When it comes to energy prices, Senator Landrieu’s clout has yet to slow the Obama administration’s assault on affordable energy. Louisiana’s energy industry is going to be disproportionately harmed by the EPA’s proposed regulations, killing good-paying jobs and raising energy bills.

“When it comes to health care, the unacceptable treatment for our veterans should serve raise alarm bells for the rest of us: government-run care is not the answer.

“Many Arkansans may see their friends or their loved ones reflected on their screens in our latest ad on Senator Pryor’s record. For the sake of their well-being, they need Senator Pryor to stop voting with President Obama to keep growing our debt and our government.”
