With White House Jobs Summit This Week KSBH Unveils New TV Ads Targeting Senators on Health Care
Date:12/2/2009

$1 Million - 4 State Campaign Features Small Business Owners Detailing How Legislation Hurts Small Businesses and Would Kill Jobs

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the White House jobs summit scheduled for Thursday, Keeping Small Business Healthy, a project of The Institute for Liberty, today announced a new $1 million 4 state TV ad campaign targeting Senators on the effects of the current health care legislation on small business owners and how it would ultimately cost jobs.

The ads will target Senator Lincoln (D-AR), Senator Landrieu (D-LA), Senator Nelson (D-NE), Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Senator Conrad (D-ND).

"Small businesses drive our economy. Unemployment is at a 25 year high. Yet the White House and Congress continue to ignore the devastating consequences this health care reform legislation will have on small business," said Andrew Langer, KSBH President. "I've got an idea for the jobs summit; stop proposing legislation that will devastate small business and lead to higher unemployment."

Each state specific ad will feature small business owners/constituents from that state discussing how they will be hurt if health care reform passes in its present form. The :30 second TV ad begins running in each state today. See the ads at www.healthysmallbusiness.org.

"This bill will kill jobs. It's bad for those who want true reform, and it's bad for small business," continued Langer.

Phone calls targeting Senators also began statewide today. The phone calls urge small business owners and constituents to call their Senator and tell them to support job creation and not a health care bill which kills jobs.

A full transcript of the Nebraska version of the ad can be found below.

The primary objective of Keeping Small Business Healthy, a project of the Institute for Liberty, is to ensure any health care reform legislation passed by Congress addresses the challenges faced by small business without imposing harmful government mandates and new taxes. Keeping Small Business Healthy believes that health care reform must be smart reform that includes medical liability reform, more health insurance options and competition to help decrease costs.
