FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: RADIO CAMPAIGN TARGETING SO-CALLED “HEALTHY UTAH” MEDICAID EXPANSION REMINDS UTAHANS OF OBAMACARE’S BROKEN PROMISES
“HEALTHY UTAH” IS BIGGER, TAXPAYER-FUNDED OBAMACARE WELFARE FOR WORKING-AGE, NON-DISABLED ADULTS
Radio ads sponsored by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA)—the nation’s only state-based think tank focused exclusively on health and welfare reform—began airing Monday to remind Utahans about the flood of lies that came from Washington as DC politicians pushed their agenda on American communities. Explaining how Governor Herbert’s so-called “Healthy Utah” Medicaid welfare expansion plan is bigger, taxpayer-funded ObamaCare, the ad feature quotes from President Obama, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and Jonathan “Stupidity of the American Voter” Gruber as they misled the people about ObamaCare’s health care takeover.
“The so-called “Healthy Utah” plan isn’t about Utah principles, it’s about a handful of Republicans trying to curry favor from Washington politicians by expanding the welfare state to working-age, non-disabled adults who don’t work,” said FGA CEO Tarren Bragdon.
“We’ve sponsored these ads to remind people of the lies ObamaCare activists have used to sell ObamaCare and to show them how those same lies and broken promises are being used today to try and bring Washington schemes to Utah through the “Healthy Utah” Medicaid welfare expansion plan.”
The ads will run on KNRS, KKAT and KSUB and encourage listeners to visit www.UnHealthyUtah.com to send a message to their elected officials to reject the ObamaCare “Healthy Utah” Medicaid expansion. The ad can be heard here.
