Organizing for Action, the independent political group born out of President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign effort, released a television ad Thursday promoting the benefits of Obamacare for families, CNN reported.
In the ad titled “Every Day,” a North Carolina couple discuss the insurance rebates they received under the Affordable Care Act that helped them pay for their young son’s health care.
“When the Affordable Care Act was passed, we ended up getting a $350 rebate from our insurance company,” parent Rebecca said in the ad. “And then his premiums would go down by about $60 a month.”
“The law works,” Rebecca concludes.
An OFA official confirmed to CNN that the 30-second ad spot will run on national cable channels Bravo and Lifetime as part of a media campaign that will total seven figures by summer’s end.
