ALEXANDRIA, VA. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new nationwide television ad that advocates the repeal of healthcare reform. The 60-second ad features Philip Storer, a World War II veteran who is concerned Obamacare will take away the freedoms that he and thousands of Americans fought so hard to protect.
“On D-Day, thousands of Americans fought to protect our freedoms, now Washington is jeopardizing that liberty by creating a crippling debt and an oppressive tax regime,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of 60 Plus. “Washington’s addiction to wasteful spending and big-government initiatives is suppressing the independence of Americans. Obamacare is the most obvious and obstructive of these big-government programs that will crush our economy. Its repeal is not optional, but necessary. This November, we must support candidates who will protect our freedoms, our liberty; candidates who have promised to repeal Obamacare.”
The organization will spend more than $500,000 nationwide. A full transcript of the television ad can be found below or a video of the ad can be found by clicking here .
– TRANSCRIPT –
June 1944. D-Day. Allied troops land at Normandy. Their mission: save the world from a deadly and growing oppression.
PHILIP STORER, WWII AND D-DAY VETERAN:
I was one of thousands that landed on D-Day. We fought to protect something we all hold very dear, our freedoms. Today, our freedoms are threatened by a very different kind of enemy. The enemy is big government, wasteful spending, and crushing debt. Nowhere is this threat more apparent than in the attempted government takeover of healthcare. The first step has been taken. If we don’t repeal the healthcare bill, government will grow, debt will explode, choices will become fewer and your freedoms will be chipped away. I still believe our freedoms are worth fighting for. The fight to repeal the government takeover of health care is up to you.
