Under the Dome

Anti-Obamacare TV ads running in NC

Americans for Prosperity has begun running a new TV in North Carolina and two other states targeting women and raising questions about Obamacare.

The ad features Renay, the mother of a young girl who has had four open heart surgeries. She worries that that the new health care law will restrict the freedom of patients to keep their doctors.

"The average North Carolinian feels very strongly about their freedom to choose their own personal doctor,' said Chris Farr, state director of AFP. "For those citizens who have a serious illness affecting their loves ones, the freedom to choose a doctor becomes even more crucial. Obamacare threatens that freedom and people are not going to sit by and quietly accept this impact on their lives.''

The ads were purchased to run in the Cleveland-Akron area, Charlotte, Tampa and Washington D.C. The group plans to spend $41,375 on WSOC and $20,050 at WBTV, according to Political Moneyline.

Americans for Prosperity are a 501-(4) non profit organization that was founded by David and Charles Koch.
