Standing against big government and for the people!
It was bound to happen: Canceled health plans are the new stars of anti-Barrycare ads.
Americans for Prosperity, one of the most powerful tea party groups in the country, is launching TV ads Thursday against two first-term House Democrats that blame the health care law for taking away health insurance people already had.
The group is spending more than $600,000 on the ads against Rick Nolan of Minnesota’s 8th District and Ann McLane Kuster of New Hampshire’s 2nd District. And it’s promising to spend a lot more on TV, radio and digital media in the coming months to highlight the disruption it says the law is causing in people’s lives.
Unlike other tea party groups, Americans for Prosperity stayed out of the push to defund Obamacare — the campaign that led to the government shutdown — arguing that the law won’t be repealed until opponents of the law have stronger numbers in Congress. The group says this will be part of a broader campaign that will target other vulnerable House Democrats as well as Senate Democrats in close races.
“We have said all along that repealing Obamacare is a long-term effort, and these ads are a continuation of that effort,” said AFP president Tim Phillips. The message of the ads, he says, is that “it doesn’t have to be this way. It can be changed.”
