The liberal Daily Kos began running a radio ad in Milwaukee this week that targets GOP U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin over his vote to repeal the federal health care overhaul.
In the spot, the narrator says the Janesville Republican and House Budget chair thinks “he deserves better than you.” The narrator says Ryan receives affordable health care with protections against insurance companies cutting him off, but last month voted to deny others the same protections.
The spot also says he also voted to raise health insurance premiums, take prescription drug coverage away from seniors and deny coverage for children, among other things.
“But don’t worry,” the narrator says. “Congressman Ryan is all set since his vote didn’t apply to the health plan he gets as a member of Congress. Call Congressman Paul Ryan and tell him health care protections that are good enough for Congress should be good enough for all of us.”
Daily Kos says the 60-second spots begins running this week on 1290 WMCS in Milwaukee, WJRN-1400 AM/WEZY-92.FM in Racine and WCLO AM 1230/-WJVL 99.9FM in Janesville. The spot will run 174 times.
