Iowa — Today, Protect Our Care is releasing a new ad highlighting U.S. Representative Cindy Axne’s (IA-03) efforts to bring down health care costs for Iowans. The ad features a testimonial from Jessica, who struggles to afford the high premiums on her health insurance. In the ad, Jessica tells her personal story and thanks lawmakers like Rep. Axne for standing up to big insurance companies and expanding affordable coverage to working people. 

Polling shows that health care consistently ranks as a top concern for Americans, particularly when they are concerned about higher prices. People across political parties overwhelmingly support reforms to bring down health care costs. Protect Our Care’s new ad will begin running on Tuesday, May 17 on broadcast and cable television, streaming services, YouTube and other digital platforms. 

The new ad is part of a multi-million dollar campaign announced last month to support health care champions fighting to lower health care costs. The overall campaign is focused in the following districts: Reps. Cindy Axne (IA-03), Angie Craig (MN-02), Sharice Davids (KS-03), Andy Kim (NJ-03), Susie Lee (NV-03), Elissa Slotkin (MI-08), Abigail Spanberger (VA-07), and Susan Wild (PA-07). Last month, Protect Our Care released ads highlighting Rep. Axne’s work to ban surprise medical bills and lower insurance premiums. Watch the first ads in the series here.
