On the 12th anniversary of the signing of the Affordable Care Act into law, the Democratic National Committee is launching a new digital ad campaign in Wisconsin, Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, blasting Senator Ron Johnson and Republicans’ latest threat to the ACA. The ads highlight what Republican control could mean for Americans’ health care: higher premiums, higher prescription drug prices, and no protections for people with preexisting conditions.
“Ron Johnson and Republicans’ latest threats to the Affordable Care Act is appalling, but not surprising in the least,” said DNC spokesperson Allyson Bayless. “After years of trying to gut Americans’ health care, every single House Republican voted against lowering prescription drug prices last fall, and now Senator Johnson has made clear that the next plank in Republicans’ economic agenda is to once again target Americans’ health care, rolling back protections for people with preexisting conditions, and making health care and prescription drugs more expensive. Hardworking American families deserve to know exactly what Republican control would mean for their health care.”
