NEW DCCC TV AD in VA-07: Freitas Is Bad for Virginians’ Health Care
First DCCC TV Ad in VA-07 Highlights Nick Freitas’ Special Interest Ties and Terrible Health Care Record
Today, the DCCC released a new TV ad reminding voters of Republican Nick Freitas’ special interest ties and terrible health care record.
“Couldn’t Be,” airing beginning August 27th in Richmond, reminds voters that Freitas is looking out for himself and special interests, even if it means harming Virginians’ health care during a pandemic. In addition to his voting record, Freitas supports a plan that would gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions like asthma and diabetes and would allow insurance companies to continue to raise the costs of prescription drugs. Nick Freitas even once called the Affordable Care Act a “cancer.”
Freitas’ health care plan would deny over 700,000 Virginians health insurance during this pandemic.
Time and time again, voters name health care as a top priority, but Freitas has put his donors ahead Central Virginia raking in thousands from the insurance industry and other special interests.
DCCC Spokesperson Christine Bennett released the following statement:
“Nick Freitas’ voting record and continued support of efforts to gut protections for Virginians with pre-existing conditions and his cozy relationship with the same insurance companies that continue to raise the cost of prescription drugs tells you everything you need to know about which side he’s on. Nick Freitas is bad for health care and bad for Virginians.”
