Via press release:
ROSWELL, GA – Former Georgia Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel today launched a new radio ad campaign on the topic of Obamacare and the special treatment from it enjoyed by members of Congress at the taxpayer’s expense. The ad will begin running in Atlanta, Savannah and Athens today. We believe this is the first paid advertising effort of the 2014 Senate campaign.
The text of the ad and an audio copy follows:
FINAL HANDEL FOR SENATE, INC. RADIO:60 – “BACK ON TRACK”
MUSIC UP & UNDER
Only in Washington can Congressmen campaign against Obamacare – while receiving special treatment and thousands in taxpayer subsidies that the rest of us don’t get.
This is Karen Handel – and I’m running for United States Senate.
Under Obamacare, Members of Congress and their staffs are required to buy health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges or plans created under Obamacare – just like you and me.
But unlike you and me, Congress gets to keep up to $11,000 a year in taxpayer subsidies – all thanks to a special deal worked out with President Obama.
So Congress gets special treatment.
And what do Georgians get? More government in our health care. Higher health care costs. And higher premiums – up to 198% higher.
I’m Karen Handel, and I approved this message because, as your Senator, I will stand up against special treatment for Congress.
