Personal Stories of New Hampshire Women Who Lost Their Health Insurance

ARLINGTON – Americans for Prosperity today continues its efforts to hold congress accountable for ObamaCare, and the devastating impact the law is having on millions of Americans.  The new television ads features personal stories of Granite State citizens who have lost their health insurance and blame Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Ann Kuster.

“New Hampshire residents Donna and Helen are the latest in a long line of Americans who have lost their health insurance, watched their premiums spike, and found themselves without access to their doctor,” explained Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity. “While Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster continue to play politics, millions of people who were told they could keep their care are now dealing with the reality of the ‘Lie of the Year.’  For many, that means higher costs, lost access to doctors and hospitals, and less choice. This ad will ask that President Obama and Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster be honest and admit that ObamaCare is not the answer.”

The ads feature Helen DePrima of Bedford and Donna Marzullo of Deering, who had their policies terminated due to ObamaCare.  DePrima has seen her cost for prescription drugs spike, while Marzullo will lose access to the two hospitals nearest her (Concord Hospital and Monadnock Hospital) when her policy ends in November.

“Rep. Shea-Porter voted for ObamaCare and told us that ‘If you like your coverage, you can keep it’ and has voted against numerous bills to repeal Obamacare and its devastating impacts, and Rep. Kuster announced her full-throated support for ObamaCare last Thursday, while repeatedly voting against efforts to mitigate its impact,” added Americans for Prosperity – New Hampshire state director Greg Moore.  “Now, it’s time for them to be held accountable for inflicting this pain on the citizens of New Hampshire.”

These ads will run on New Hampshire broadcast and cable television and encompass a $575,000 purchase. They follow earlier accountability ads by AFP-NH last month that focused on Kuster and Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s support for ObamaCare.
