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 justexempt.me, asking for the same special treatment provided to Big Business, Congress and the well-connected.

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.
