Man Dying of ALS Tells Congressman Holding to Protect Our Health Care in New Ad

LONGTIME HEALTHCARE ACTIVIST BATTLING ALS FEATURED IN NEW DIGITAL AD
“TELL CONGRESSMAN GEORGE HOLDING, WE NEED TO REPEAL THE TAX PLAN” AND PROTECT HEALTH CARE FOR WORKING FAMILIES

Tax Cuts For Billionaires Threaten Healthcare for Dying Man and His Family

Raleigh, NC – This week, “Not One Penny” – an organization which advocates for repeal of the Trump Tax Plan in order to support health care, Medicare, and Medicaid – is up with digital ad featuring Ady Barkan, a longtime healthcare advocate who is dying of ALS. Barkan calls out Congressman George Holding for dismantling healthcare protections with his support for the GOP tax law favoring billionaires and millionaires.

The ad is part of a six-figure national campaign targeted at specific congressional districts.  In North Carolina’s 2nd district, the ad aims to educate Congressman Holding’s constituents on his vote for the tax law and its devastating impact to the health and well-being of voters in his district.

The ad is likely to resonate with Congressman Holding’s constituents that are concerned with his repeated efforts to sabotage of the Affordable Care Act, which could result in 315,000 2nd Congressional District residents losing their health care.  A recent Kaiser Health Tracking poll found that health care is “the most important issue” for one-fourth of voters — a number likely only to grow as the same poll found that nearly six in ten Americans live in a household where someone has a pre-existing condition.

Congressman George Holding continues to be oblivious to the needs of his constituents in the 2nd Congressional District. He voted with the GOP to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He voted for the #TrumpHoldingTaxScam that benefits millionaires, billionaires, and Big Pharma. Working families in NC’s Congressional District 2 are left behind while Congressman Holding relies on taxpayer money to provide his free health care.
