WASHINGTON – Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) is launching robocalls and targeted Facebook posts urging Americans to call their representatives and ask why they supported President Obama’s lie that people could keep their healthcare plans under ObamaCare.
The RNC is targeting eleven Democrats who support ObamaCare, including nine U.S. Senators who voted in 2010 to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. The effort includes Senators Mark Warner (VA), Mark Begich (AK), Dick Durbin (IL), Kay Hagan (NC), Mary Landrieu (LA), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Pryor (AR), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), and Mark Udall (CO), as well as Representatives Bruce Braley (IA) and Gary Peters (MI).
“We now know the President’s repeated promise that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them was a blatant lie,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “In 2010 President Obama and the Democrats were warned about this very issue and deliberately chose to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. Americans should call their representatives and ask why they supported the ObamaCare lie.”
Read the sample robocall scripts below:
President Obama and the Democrats said you could keep your healthcare plan under Obamacare. Now we know [SENATOR] actually VOTED to make it more difficult. Call [SENATOR] at (XXX)-XXX-XXX and ask why [he/she] lied.
President Obama and the Democrats said you could keep your healthcare plan under ObamaCare. Now we know [REPRESENTATIVE] actually made that same promise. Call [REPRESENTATIVE] (XXX)-XXX-XXX and ask why [he/she] lied.
