Americans for Prosperity Launches Ads Criticizing Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick’s ObamaCare Support

Americans for Prosperity launched a massive television and radio ad campaign today targeting Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick over her support of  Obamacare. The $450,000 ad buy will run on both broadcast and cable in the Phoenix market and will ask viewers to tell Kirkpatrick to “exempt them too” from Obamacare.

“‘Not perfect’ not good enough for Arizonans,” says director Jenney.

PHOENIX — Americans for Prosperity-Arizona is launching radio and television ads across Arizona’s first congressional district, criticizing Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick for supporting ObamaCare.

The television ad can be seen here and will run in the first district on broadcast and cable for three weeks. It also promotes the hashtag #ExemptMeToo, referring to the special treatment received by the well-connected.

Kirkpatrick voted to enact ObamaCare in 2009 and has since admitted the law is “not perfect.”

“”Not perfect’ is a tremendous understatement, and it’s not good enough for Arizonans who are facing higher premiums and fewer health care choices,” said AFP-Arizona State Director Tom Jenney. “These ads are allowing our activists to voice their frustration over legislation that is wreaking havoc on the economy, forcing reduced hours on many in our work force, and failing to deliver sensible health care solutions.”

AFP-Arizona has been traveling the state talking to activists about the problems inherent in ObamaCare on a tour called “Sick & Sicker: Preparing for ObamaCare” with stops including Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff. Americans for Prosperity has consistently opposed the legislation since its inception. Hundred of thousands of the group’s activists have already signed the Exempt Me, Too! petition at, asking for the same special treatment provided to Big Business, Congress and the well-connected.

Maricopa GOP Chair Rallies LD Censures

To all Arizona County and LD Republican Committee Chairmen -
Below is the front page article of the July 15 Arizona Capitol Times. I want to express my appreciation to those courageous and principled County and LD Republican Committees who have already conducted votes of “censure” and/or “no confidence.”
Jan Brewer, the legislators and their crony capitalist friends that support ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion have betrayed Americans, Arizona Republicans and the Republican Party Platform.  Their lack of ethics, integrity and egregious acts are motivated by only two things – greed and the lust for power – at the expense of hard working tax paying Americans.
The law was expected to cost $898 billion over the first decade when the bill was first passed, but this year the Congressional Budget Office revised that estimate to $1.85 trillion.  Money that will have to be borrowed from the Chinese or printed in the backroom of the Federal Reserve.  Latest polls indicate a majority of Americans are opposed to ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion with an overwhelming majority of Republicans in opposition.
During the past six months, we did everything we could to make a solid argument against ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion, we tried to reason with these people and even tried to make them see the light.  Unfortunately, our lobbying efforts fell on deaf ears and without success.
During one of Ronald Reagan’s difficult political battles he said,
               ”When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.”
I’m asking all the County and LD Republican Committees to make these people feel the heat by passing public censures for their actions.  They are elitists who think what they have done should be forgiven. They are mistaken.  We are not going to be able to defeat all of them, but we can defeat a majority of them in the 2014 Primary Election.
You can go to “MCRC Briefs” and get examples of public censures that have already been passed.  Just type “censure” in the search field on the left.
Warmest regards,
 A. J. LaFaro
Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee
P.S.  Please encourage all of your PCs to keep up their daily efforts in getting petition signatures for  Getting ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion on the November 2014 ballot will be historic for Arizona’s grassroots conservatives.

VP: Obamacare. It was a travesty. An abomination. A big government takeover of health care. We did not want it. We could not afford it. It should not have happened. Now the Supreme Court has spoken, Congress needs to clean up the mess. No more raids on Medicare. Let doctors, nurses and health care professionals make the medical decisions not big government. The way it should be.

I’m Vernon Parker and I approved this message.

Parker, 52, is a rising star in the Republican Party. He is current councilman and former mayor of Paradise Valley. Raised by his grandmother in a severely underprivileged neighborhood, Parker was able to escape his environment through love, education, and hard work.

Boycott working: Harkins Theaters & Harley Davidson drop advertising in Phoenix New Times

A m e r i c a n  P o s t – G a z e t t e

Distributed by C O M M O N  S E N S E , in Arizona
Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Senator Russell Pearce, B.A.N. president, today announced that two major Arizona businesses had suspended advertising with the pro-illegal immigration Phoenix New Times / Village Voice Media companies. HARKINS THEATERS andBUDDY STUBBS HARLEY DAVIDSON have suspended advertising with the New Times, according to representatives of both companies yesterday, April 9th.

On March 28th, B.A.N. called for a boycott of advertisers who refuse to suspend business with the pro-amnesty New Times / Village Voice Media. Their ad-dollars fund the New Times’ attacks on law enforcement, elected officials and conservative individuals and organizations in Arizona and across the nation. In recent weeks, the New Times / Village Voice has come under intense scrutiny for alleged ties to prostitution advertising and links to child sex trafficking on its advertising pages.

RUSSELL PEARCE: Thank you to Harkins Theaters, Buddy Stubbs Harley Davidson for boycotting Phoenix New Times

Written by Sean McCaffrey on April 10, 2012, 04:30 PM
Ban Amnesty Now (B.A.N.), with more than 400,000 members/supporters in Arizona, and more than 800,000 across America, has announced two major Phoenix-area businesses have suspended advertising with the Phoenix New Times / Village Voice Media.

Harkins Theaters and Buddy Stubbs Harley Davidson both informed Ban Amnesty Now yesterday they were suspending all future advertising with the Phoenix New Times / Village Voice Media. The advertising suspensions came in response to recent reports of New Times / Village Voice Media ties to prostitution and sex trafficking, including that of children, according to the Associated Press.

Ban Amnesty Now has called for all Arizona businesses, including retailers like Buddy Stubbs Harley Davidson, entertainment venues like Harkins Theaters, restaurants and other businesses, to stop advertising with the New Times / Village Voice publications. The revenues from their advertisements, along with those tied to prostitution and other sordid crimes, are funding the New Times’ vicious attacks against Arizona law enforcement, elected officials, and conservative individuals and organizations.

“We have suspended all advertising with the New Times,” Bryan Laurel, marketing director of Harkins Theaters, told B.A.N.

“We won’t be advertising with New Times anymore until this is all resolved,” wrote Phillip McKee, in a communication to Ban Amnesty Now.

Pearce said he hoped the leadership showed by Dan Harkins and Buddy Stubbs would encourage other businesses to follow suit.

“Harkins Theaters and Buddy Stubbs Harley Davidson are truly Arizona-friendly, truly children-friendly, and join the ranks of businesses with the ethics and responsibility not to advertise with the New Times,” said Pearce. “No respectable business should be sharing ad-space alongside pedophiles and prostitutes, and until the New Times stops their deviant practices, we’ll continue to ask businesses to stop advertising on their pages.”

With B.A.N. in this growing coalition of conservative and patriotic organizations supporting the boycott of Phoenix New Times advertisers is the RidersUSA motorcycle club, which also offered this statement:

“RidersUSA is very happy to hear that Buddy Stubbs has joined us on this cause. We believe not only does the New Times promote hideous, ‘unspeakables’ against children, but they also promote hate and encourage racism,” Valerie Roller, spokesperson for RidersUSA. “We encourage all members of the Biker Community to support Senator Pearce and this boycott and anyone still on the list needs to step up and remove their advertising.”

Pearce called upon remaining New Times advertisers to stop funding the media giant’s hate campaigns against law enforcement, elected officials, and conservative individuals and organizations. “We are tracking advertisers and if you won’t willingly pull your ads, we will ask our members to speak with their wallets – and to stop patronizing your businesses until you find other places to advertise. That is the only way we, together, can change the way the New Times does business.”

According to the Associated Press, 50 arrests in 22 states have already taken place involving child sex trafficking cases originating on the pages of the New Times / Village Voice publications. Despite repeated pleas from law enforcement and elected officials, the company refuses to pull-down these ads which generate an estimated $22 MILLION annually in revenue.

“I am so proud of Dan Harkins and Buddy Stubbs for being leaders in Arizona’s business community and for doing what’s right for Arizona families, children, and our state,” said Pearce.
