America First Policies Releases TV Ads Calling on Eight Senators to Repeal and Replace Obamacare
Today, America First Policies released ads in eight states represented by Democrat Senators: Indiana (Sen. Donnelly), Michigan (Sen. Stabenow), Missouri (Sen. McCaskill), Montana (Sen. Tester), North Dakota (Sen. Heitkamp), Ohio (Sen. Brown), Virginia (Sen. Kaine), and West Virginia (Sen. Manchin). The ads encourage constituents to call their respective senators and urge them to vote “yes” on the U.S. Senate’s health care bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which is scheduled for a vote this week.
“Obamacare is dead, and President Trump and leaders in Congress are working hard to repeal and replace it immediately,” said Katrina Pierson, spokeswoman for America First Policies. “America First is appealing to voters in these states to encourage these senators to send a clear message to their elected officials: ‘vote yes to repeal and replace Obamacare now.’”
“America First is running ads in the states of these eight Senators because they too should hear from their constituents about supporting this bill,” Pierson added. “The American people, including President Trump’s supporters, want to see this bill passed this week. Millions of Americans are suffering under Obamacare and obstruction is not a solution. The choice is simple: these Senators need to stand with the American people or with the liberal leadership in Washington.”
The ads are part of a larger 18-state blitz to pass the Senate health care bill. Beginning in early June, America First Policies has been urging constituents to call their Senators and support the repeal and replacement of Obamacare in Ohio, Nevada, Alaska, Texas, Utah, Louisiana, Maine, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Iowa, and North Dakota. In addition to these television advertisements, America First Policies will continue making calls to voters, along with digital advertising.
