GOP ads target Boyd, Grayson, Kosmas on health care
In a sign of things to come, the Republican National Committee today announced it is running radio ads against Florida Reps. Allen Boyd, Alan Grayson and Suzanne Kosmas. The topic: health care reform.
“Most Americans agree,” the ad states, “it’s time to take action to reform our healthcare system. But the dangerous experiment President Obama and the Democrats in Congress want just can’t be the right answer.” The announcer urges listeners to call the lawmakers and tell them “to say no to this dangerous experiment.” (full script in jump)
The 60-second spot, which began over the weekend, does not point out that the lawmakers themselves are squeamish about the current proposals. Boyd, a member of the moderate Blue Dog coalition, and Kosmas, have expressed unease with the current plan, reflecting the politics of their districts. Kosmas and Grayson are trying to stave off attack for having taken incumbent GOP seats.
Voice: “Most Americans agree. It’s time to take action to reform our health care system. But the dangerous experiment President Obama and the Democrats in Congress want just can’t be the right answer. The question is what [Congressman/Congresswoman Boyd/Grayson/Kosmas] will do.”
Voice: “Look at their record. The stimulus package cost us hundreds of billions without creating new jobs. The national debt has more than doubled.”
Voice: “If Barack Obama and the Democrats get their way, the Federal Government will make the decisions about your health care. And, their plan costs a trillion dollars we don’t have. You have to pay a new tax to keep your private insurance. It’s too much, too fast.”
Voice: “Call [Congressman/Congresswoman Boyd/Grayson/Kosmas] at (202) 225-3121, that’s (202) 225-3121 and tell him/her to say no to this dangerous experiment.”
