A conservative non-profit organization has changed it stance on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare and has put in $1 million to show how serious they are.
Club for Growth is running an advertising campaign on television (as well as some additional digital services) beginning on Tuesday in support of the second version of the Paul Ryan and GOP-led healthcare bill after opposing the first.
The reason for their reversal was precise – Vice President Mike Pence’s proposal of a state waiver being added to the bill.
“The Trump Administration has worked tirelessly to improve the RyanCare bill so that it would actually lower premiums, but GOP moderates have worked to thwart those efforts,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh said in a statement released on the group’s official website.
“The Club for Growth supported the deal for state waivers of costly Obamacare regulations that was facilitated last week by Vice President Pence, but moderates have blocked that progress. It’s time for all Republicans to do what they promised voters and back legislation that fulfills President Trump’s pledge to end Obamacare and lower premiums.”
The ads will run nationally and then on Thursday, more will begin in targeted areas such as the 10 congressional districts represented by Republican moderates. Below is the ad:
