Conservative Super PAC Links Enzi To Wyoming Health Exchange In New Ad

A conservative super PAC plans to release a new ad linking Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) to his state’s healthcare exchange website. 

The television ad, first reported by Politico, was produced by Americans for Job Security and includes clips of Enzi speaking during a 2010 conference with Obama and lawmakers discussing Obamacare and the state exchanges. The spot will air Monday. 

“I like the exchanges,” Enzi is quoted as saying in the ad. “These exchanges can be good.” 

“Good?” a voiceover in the ad responded. “Wyoming’s Obamacare exchange has the most expensive premiums in the country, and it’s marred by glitches.”

The ad ends with the tagline “tell Mike Enzi we don’t like these liberal, Big Government Obamacare exchanges.” 

Enzi, one of the most conservative members of the Senate, voted against the Affordable Care Act back in 2010. He also supports efforts to repeal the law. 

Enzi is currently facing a primary challenge from Republican Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
