Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action Launch New Digital Ads Highlighting Mike Braun’s Dangerous Plan for Health Care

Washington, D.C. (October 3, 2018) Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action are launching a new round of digital ads in Indiana focused on Mike Braun’s support for a lawsuit that would strip away critical protections for people with pre-existing conditions, as well as his support for the GOP tax plan, which slashes taxes for millionaires like Braun while raising premiums for hardworking Hoosiers. The ads also highlight recent revelations about the insurance plan offered at Braun’s company, which features out-of-pocket deductibles as high as $10,000.

The new ads come as part of Priorities and SMP’s previously announced seven-figure campaign in Indiana. The ads will run wherever voters are consuming content online, including Facebook and video and audio streaming platforms such as YouTube, Hulu and Spotify.

“Hoosier families should not have to play guessing games about where their elected officials stand on health care, but Mike Braun has consistently misled them about his health care record,” said Chris Hayden, spokesperson for SMP. “On the campaign trail Mike Braun has lied to Hoosiers about the health care plans he provided his employees, and he is not telling them truth about his support for stripping health care protections for Hoosiers with pre-existing conditions. SMP and Priorities are dedicated to making sure Hoosiers know the truth about Mike Braun’s disastrous health care record.”

“Hoosiers are worried about the rising cost of health care, but Mike Braun’s only answer has been to call for an end to policies that help keep costs low and support letting insurance companies once again deny coverage for people with pre-existing conditions,” said Josh Schwerin, spokesperson for Priorities USA Action. “Now Braun is trying to say he doesn’t actually believe any of this, but his record is clear. Hoosiers deserve better than a bad businessman like Braun, and Priorities and SMP are committed to ensuring they continue to have true champion in the Senate.”
