NRCC launches ad targeting Democrats over single-payer healthcare

Congress Still Divided As Government Shutdown Enters Third Day

National Republicans are targeting Democrats in several states over single-payer healthcare.

The National Republican Congressional Committee released a digital ad Thursday in eight states, including Florida, asking Democrats whether “they’ll support Nancy Pelosi’s vision for a European-style single-payer healthcare plan.”

“European-style single-payer healthcare is the new litmus test in the Democratic Party,” said Matt Gorman, the communications director for the NRCC. “Every day from today until Election Day, Democrats will be forced to answer whether they support this disastrous plan which raises trillions in taxes, controls all your healthcare decisions, and could even end Medicare Part D and the VA.”

The 60-second spot says a move to a single-payer plan would lead to “trillions in higher taxes, government control of your doctor, hospital and even prescriptions.”

“It could even abolish Medicare Part D and the VA,” a voice over says.

The digital ad is part of a six-figure ad buy that targets Democrats in California, New York, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota, and Virginia, in addition to Florida.
