Washington, DC — As the United States surpasses 5 million cases of COVID-19, Donald Trump is still pushing the Supreme Court to kill the Affordable Care Act while at the same time threatening to choke off crucial funding from Social Security and Medicare. As president, Joe Biden will reverse Donald Trump’s unconscionable attacks on the well-being of the American people and protect health care access for generations to come.
Released ahead of the start of the Democratic National Convention, “C’mon Man” illustrates Donald Trump’s attack on American health care using his own words. Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that his administration will “kill” the Affordable Care Act and “terminate health care.” While Trump is trying to score political points at the expense of American lives, Joe Biden has consistently vowed to protect and build on the Affordable Care Act, providing access to high quality health care for millions of Americans. “C’mon Man” will run on digital platforms in key battleground states targeting voters particularly persuadable on health care as part of Priorities’ nearly $1.5 million weekly TV and digital ad buy.
Priorities USA Action is committed to spending over $200 million to defeat Donald Trump and ensure that Joe Biden is in the White House next year to fight for our access to high quality care.
“Donald Trump’s assault on the health care coverage of millions of Americans is nothing new. Trump’s obsession with repealing the Affordable Care Act is part of a clear pattern of putting personal politics ahead of the well-being of the American people,” said Josh Schwerin, Senior Strategist and Communications Director for Priorities USA. “As an instrumental figure in passing the ACA, Joe Biden knows what it takes to pass consequential legislation that will actually improve the lives of the American people. Our health care is under attack, and we need Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on the front lines.”
