Radio Buy Features the Story of a San Diego Cancer Victim Who Has Lost Her Insurance Under ObamaCare
WASHINGTON – The National Republican Congressional Committee launched a paid radio ad in San Diego today, using Scott Peters’ support of ObamaCare against him. The ad highlights a local San Diego woman who is battling cancer and losing her insurance under ObamaCare.
Residents across California are losing insurance thanks to Scott Peters and his repeated support of ObamaCare. They were promised they could keep their current plans. Now when they need it most, they can’t find quality healthcare.
“Scott Peters’ support of ObamaCare is making it harder for California families to get quality healthcare,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “They were sold a bill of goods and now they’re the ones paying the price.”

VOICEOVER: The ObamaCare trainwreck is here.
VOICEOVER: And the impact it’s having? Devastating for some — including a San Diego woman who’s fought cancer for years.
VOICEOVER: “The sixty two year old diagnosed seven years ago…learned her health insurance plan will be canceled by year’s end.”
VOICEOVER: It’s outrageous. And it gets worse.
VOICEOVER: “…not only can she no longer keep her insurance, but she can no longer see her doctors, either.”
VOICEOVER: President Obama promised that wouldn’t happen.
VOICEOVER: And Congressman Scott Peters?
VOICEOVER: Peters supported ObamaCare and said, “Most San Diegans will be able to keep the coverage they currently have.”
VOICEOVER: But for a million Californians, that’s not true. Millions more can expect premium increases, higher deductibles, higher co-pays…
VOICEOVER: It’s a disaster.
VOICEOVER: Call Scott Peters at 202-225-0508. Tell him, Obamacare is hurting Californians.
