Karen Handel isn’t letting any grass grow under her feet in her efforts to define her role – and that of the Congressmen she’s running against. She’s out with the first radio ad of the campaign which will begin airing tonight in Atlanta on WSB and in Savannah and Athens – coincidentally home to the three Congressmen in this race.
The text of the ad is as follows:
Only in Washington can Congressmen campaign against Obamacare – while receiving special treatment and thousands in taxpayer subsidies that the rest of us don’t get.
This is Karen Handel – and I’m running for United States Senate.
Under Obamacare, Members of Congress and their staffs are required to buy health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges or plans created under Obamacare – just like you and me.
But unlike you and me, Congress gets to keep up to $11,000 a year in taxpayer subsidies – all thanks to a special deal worked out with President Obama.
So Congress gets special treatment.
And what do Georgians get? More government in our health care. Higher health care costs. And higher premiums – up to 198% higher.
I’m Karen Handel, and I approved this message because, as your Senator, I will stand up against special treatment for Congress.
