Club for Growth Launches Half-Million-Dollar Ad Campaign Urging House Members to Oppose RyanCare


Anti-RyanCare TV and digital ads to run in the districts of ten House Republicans

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement about a new Club for Growth TV and digital ad campaign that urges members of Congress to oppose RyanCare:

“The RyanCare bill fails to keep President Trump’s promises of interstate competition and health insurance deregulation,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Republicans promised a bill that would stop Obamacare’s taxes and mandates, and replace them with free-market reforms that will increase health insurance competition and drive down costs. RyanCare fails on those counts and that’s why the Club is letting millions of constituents know that their Representative should reject RyanCare.”

The Club for Growth is encouraged by changes in the bill that have been proposed by the Trump Administration, but House leadership has not gone far enough with those changes.

A sample of the Club’s new ad can be seen here and will run on TV and digital platforms March 20-22, with a total ad buy of at least $500,000. It will run in the districts of the following House members:

  • Leonard Lance (NJ-7)
  • Tom MacArthur (NJ-3)
  • *John Katko (NY-24)
  • Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-8)
  • Rob Wittman (VA-1)
  • *Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27)
  • Peter King (NY-2)
  • Charlie Dent (PA-15)
  • Darrell Issa (CA-49)
  • Don Bacon (NE-2)

The Obamacare train wreck: big government at its worst.

Canceled plans, broken promises…

…Coverage so expensive, millions just can’t afford it.

Too many mandates. Too many taxes.

Now Congress is pushing Ryancare – a bad idea doubling down on disaster.  

Washington, still in charge…

Premiums, even higher – risking coverage for millions.

It even keeps Obamacare’s tax hikes.

That’s not what Congressman XXXXX promised.

Tell (Name of Member): don’t fall for fake repeal…

Vote NO on Ryancare.

…And get rid of Obamacare for good.


*Congressman Katko and Congresswoman Ron Lehtinen have since come out as firmly opposed to Ryancare and Club for Growth is discontinuing airing this ad.
