Concerned Women for America (CWA) has announced that it is spending $6 million on an ad criticizing President Obama's health care plan. The ad began airing Wednesday, June 20, and is scheduled to run nationally on cable, social media, and in six states, including Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Virginia and Wisconsin.
According to Peggy Nance, the group's president and CEO, "Our members are highly energized on the aspects of the President's health care law; we are making a significant financial investment on this issue because we mean business. As the Supreme Court decides the fate of government-mandated health care, we must continue to seek real reform, not President Obama's plan which costs hardworking taxpayers too much money and gives Washington too much control over our personal health decisions."
CWA posted the ad on YouTube:
Commentators on YouTube were quick to point out that personal health decisions that do not involve interference by Washington politicians include a woman's right to choose. CWA opposes abortion.
Concerned Women for America describes itself as "the nation's largest public policy women's organization with a rich 30-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy. There's a cultural battle raging across this country and CWA is on the frontline protecting those values through prayer and action."
