Americans For Prosperity Launches Anti-Obamacare Ad Campaign

An ad campaign warning Americans of the “true” effects of Obamacare is launching in Ohio and Virginia Tuesday, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The television ads are a part of a $1 million campaign by the conservative advocacy group Americans For Prosperity, which was co-founded by David H. Koch and has received financial support from Koch and his brother Charles.

The ad features a mother of a son with medical needs who has questions about the Affordable Care Act’s “higher premiums.”

“If we can’t pick our own doctor, how do I know my family’s going to get the medical care we need?” she asks in the ad. “And what am I getting in exchange for higher premiums and a smaller paycheck? Can I really trust the folks in Washington with my family’s health care? I think we all deserve some answers.”
