AFP-Louisiana Launches Two New TV Ads on Landrieu

BATON ROUGE — Today the Louisiana chapter of Americans for Prosperity, the state’s foremost grassroots advocate for economic freedom, announced the launch of a major new multimedia effort in Louisiana. The group is launching TV and digital ads aimed at educating the public on the big-government policies that are hurting the state.

The group 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.

AFP-Louisiana State Director Phillip Joffrion had the following to say:

Whether it’s energy, health care, or outrageous overspending, this big-government agenda is making life tougher to afford for hard-working Louisiana families. Senator Landrieu hasn’t fixed any of it. Louisianans shouldn’t have to wonder whether they’ll need to choose between higher energy bills or putting food on the table. While Senator Landrieu says she is fixing ObamaCare, Louisianans are still facing lost access to trusted doctors and higher premiums every month. The unacceptable treatment our veterans have received should serve as a warning: government-run health care is not the way forward for our state.
