WATCH HERE: Republicans Voted Against The American Rescue Plan

Washington, DC — Protect Our Care launched a new digital ad campaign today to hold legislators accountable for their historic votes on the American Rescue Plan. The American Rescue Plan works to get the virus under control and restore our economy by providing $1,400 checks and other financial relief for children and families, getting vaccines in the arms of Americans and reducing health care costs. 

According to a recent report from the Associated Press, under this plan “Several million people stand to save hundreds of dollars in health insurance costs, or more.” Kaiser Health News found that this plan has “some of the most significant changes to insurance affordability in more than a decade.”

The ads will run in-district so constituents know where their elected officials stand on this monumental health care vote. 

Ads about support of the American Rescue Plan will be running in: U.S. Senators Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Jon Ossoff (D-GA), Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and U.S. Representatives Lucy McBath (D-GA-06), Carolyn Bordeaux (D-GA-07), Lauren Underwood (D-IL-14), Elissa Slotkin (D-MI-08), Andy Kim (D-NJ-03), Deborah Ross (D-NC-02), Matt Cartwright (D-PA-08), Conor Lamb (D-PA-17), Lizzie Fletcher (D-TX-07), Colin Allred (D-TX-32), Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-07), and Kim Schrier (D-WA-08). 

Ads about opposition to the American Rescue Plan will be running in: U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) and U.S. Representatives David Valadao (R-CA-21), Mike Garcia (R-CA-25), Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL-27), Don Bacon (R-NE-02), John Katko (R-NY-24), Steve Chabot (R-OH-01), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA-01), and Beth Van Duyne (R-TX-24). 

“Facing this pandemic, no one who voted against the American Rescue Plan can hide from their vote, and no one who voted for it should be shy about screaming it from the rooftops. The American Rescue Plan is absolutely critical in pulling our country out of this pandemic and getting it under control. Democrats are delivering lower health care costs, expanding coverage and addressing racial disparities so people can get the health care they need to defeat this pandemic,” said Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse. “Protect Our Care is making sure people know which of their elected officials voted for shots in arms, cash in the pockets of Americans, and reducing health care costs — and which ones voted to prolong the pandemic and leave their constituents without the relief they need.”

Example (AZ) Script for Positive Accountability Ad (:30)

Americans are fighting every day against this pandemic. 

Small businesses. Jobs. Time with family. Lives. All lost. 

Thankfully, your Senator Mark Kelly just voted for the American Rescue Plan.

For 1,400 dollars in relief for families.

For a surge in distributing the vaccine.

For expanding health care and lowering costs so less people get sick.

Americans want to get control of this virus. 

He voted to have our back. 

Call Senator Kelly: Tell him to keep fighting for our families.

Example (WI) Script for Negative Accountability Ad (:30)

Americans are fighting every day against this pandemic. 

Small businesses. Jobs. Time with family. Lives. All lost. 

But Senator Ron Johnson just voted against the American Rescue Plan.

Said no to 1,400 dollars in direct relief for families.

Said no to a surge in vaccine distribution.

Said no to lowering health insurance premiums and expanding care. 

Americans want to get control of this virus. 

Senator Johnson voted to prolong it. 

Call and tell him to STOP playing politics with our lives.
