|NEW JERSEY – Today, Protect Our Care is releasing a new ad highlighting Rep. Andy Kim’s (NJ-03) efforts to bring down health care costs for New Jerseyans. 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. Kim 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. Kim’s work to ban surprise medical bills and lower insurance premiums. Watch the first ads in the series here.
“Rep. Kim is working tirelessly to lower the costs of health insurance for New Jerseyans.” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “New Jerseyans are worried about rising costs and Rep. Kim is leading the fight to give them more breathing room as they manage their family budget. Thanks to Rep. Kim’s efforts, we are closer than ever to ensuring New Jerseyans can afford the health care they need.”
