WASHINGTON, D.C.–Today, the Hispanic Leadership Fund (HLF) launched a $200,000 television advertisement campaign urging constituents of U.S. Representative Pete Gallego (D-TX) to call his office and demand the repeal of Obamacare. The campaign is the first of its kind to highlight the failure of President Barack Obama’s health care law to a Spanish-speaking audience.
A recent report shows that Obamacare is going to increase healthcare costs for an average family of four by almost $7,000 a year. “Hard working families in Texas deserve a healthcare system that keeps costs low and puts them in control of their own future,” said Hispanic Leadership Fund President Mario H. Lopez. “With every passing day, Obamacare is proving to be a disaster for all Americans and it is happening because Washington politicians like Pete Gallego refuse to put the interests of everyday people first. Mr. Gallego’s constituents can do their families a great service by calling his office and urging him to stop this insanity.”
The television ads will run over the next three weeks on local Univision and Telemundo stations. The ad can be seen in Spanish and English below.
