Under the Dome

New anti-Obamacare TV ads about to hit NC airwaves from Koch Brothers group

Americans for Prosperity, a conservative advocacy group, has released its latest TV that will air in North Carolina and five other states opposing President Obama's new health care law.

The new ad, called "Tricia's story,'' features an activist who is also a two-time cancer survivor questioning whether she would receive the same kind of treatment under Obamacare.

"Obamacare is not a patient-centered healthcare system,'' said Chris Farr, the group's state director. "The bureaucracy and red tape are too much and will be particularly devastating to patients and families who have to deal with traumatic disease like cancer.''

The group said it is spending $3 million on the ad buy that begins Oct. 1 and which will run in Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Ohio and Virginia as well as North Carolina. It is the fourth in a series of TV ads being run by the group with ties to billionaire energy executives Charles and David Koch.

The ad buy in North Carolina is $366,195. It is the third ad the group has bought in this state.

In four of the states -- Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana and North Carolina -- Democrats face difficult re-election battles, while in Virginia there is a hot governor's race.
