TV Ads Target House Members Who Voted for Obamacare

League: Americans Believe in Second Chances… So Man-up to Pelosi's Pressure

WASHINGTON, March 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The League of American Voters ( launched a major TV-ad campaign today urging thirteen House members to vote "No" on the Obama-Pelosi plan to take over healthcare.

House Democrats who voted with Nancy Pelosi to narrowly pass Obamacare last November, who represent congressional districts whose citizens overwhelming oppose Obamacare, are initial targets of the ads.  The League is preparing TV ads to run in an additional seventeen congressional districts.

"Americans believe in 'second chances,' but their patience is running thin," said Bob Adams, executive Director for the League of American Voters.  "So man-up to Pelosi's pressure, and join the landslide of Americans who oppose the Obama-Pelosi plan."

The first wave of the League's TV ads zero-in on Congressmen Mike Arcuri (NY), Christopher Carney (PA), Baron Hill (IN), Steve Kagen (WI), Paul Kanjorski (PA), Alan Mollohan (WV), Nick Rahall (WV), Tom Perriello (VA), Dan Maffei (NY), Mark Schauer (MI), Zach Space (OH), Harry Teague (NM), and Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper (PA).

"Congressmen, if you think you've got trouble now back home in your district, cast the deciding vote for Obamacare," said Adams. "If you want to protect seniors from $500 billion in Medicare cuts, vote 'No.' If you want to stop job-killing tax increases on working families in the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, vote 'No'."

The script for the TV ad, called "Stop Them Now!" reads:
