Club for Growth Action Unveils Ads Exposing Julio Gonzalez’s Support for Death Panels

Rachael Slobodien - August 06th, 2018

Today, Club for Growth Action unveiled TV, radio, and digital ads as well as launched a microsite, GonzalezFacts.com, to expose Julio Gonzalez’s support for death panels like those proposed for Obamacare.  The microsite also highlights other truths about Gonzalez including his refusal to take a term limits’ pledge and his opposition to President Trump.

This ad campaign is part of an additional $300,000 buy and is running on broadcast, cable, radio, and digital throughout Florida’s 17th Congressional District.

Upon release of the ads, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh noted:

“Julio Gonzalez is out of step with Florida’s voters.  Not only did he call President Trump’s  run ‘deplorable,’ Gonzalez also supports Obamacare death panels where insurers determine whether a patient deserves to live or die.”

“Gonzalez is wrong for Congress, and Floridians deserve to know the truth about his record.”

Malpractice

 

What could be worse than Obamacare?

 

Julio Gonzalez proposed giving bureaucrats and insurance companies the power to stop treatment for people they decide cost too much to keep alive.

 

For the sake of the patient, Gonzalez wrote, insurers should be able to cutoff treatment that is “no longer of value to society.”

 

He calls it a health index.   A death panel is what critics call it.

 

Wrong for Congress.
