Group will spend $382k in statewide ad buy
(Louisville) The Kentucky Opportunity Coalition, a nonprofit organization with a mission of educating citizens about issues affecting Kentuckians, has launched a TV spot called “Stopping Obamacare.”
The 30-second spot focuses on the efforts of Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul to repeal Obamacare. The ad cites the 280-thousand Kentuckians who are losing their plans, along with other people who can no longer see the doctor of their choice, as reasons for viewers to urge Senators McConnell and Paul to keep up the fight against Obamacare.
“Kentucky has two U.S. Senators fighting for those that have been hurt by Obamacare,” said the Coalition’s senior advisor, Scott Jennings. “News reports have made clear that thousands of Kentuckians have lost their preferred insurance plan or can no longer see the doctor they want. That’s unacceptable, and we hope viewers of this ad will call Senators McConnell and Paul and tell them to keep up the fight to cut health care costs instead of health care choices.”
The spot can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNLVdjH2DY4.
The ad is running statewide (including Cincinnati) and the total buy is $382,000. The ad will run for one week, starting today.
The full script is here:
ANNC: For Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, fighting ObamaCare isn’t about politics.
It’s a fight for the Kentucky families who are losing their health coverage.
McConnell and Paul are working together to stop ObamaCare.
To stop the Washington liberals…who are forcing families out of plans that include the doctors they trust.
McConnell and Paul say, start over. Repeal this bad law, and cut costs, not choice.
Tell Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul: Keep working to replace ObamaCare.
This is the third spot the Kentucky Opportunity Coalition has released this year. The first two ads can be viewed at the Coalition’s website: www.KentuckyOpportunityCoalition.com.
