American Action Network Launches $1.2 Million Campaign To Repeal Obamacare

Posted: Updated:

The conservative American Action Network has launched a $1.2 million campaign urging 35 Republican members of the House of Representatives facing tough reelection fights to continue pushing for the repeal of Obamacare.

The national initiative includes direct mail, print advertising and robocalls, as well as web videos targeted at "select liberal members."

"The Supreme Court has upheld Obamacare," reads the mailer. "Congress has only one option: Repeal the President's government takeover of your healthcare. In addition to billions in new taxes, Obamacare also includes over $500 billion in cuts to Medicare. If the Obama government takeover of healthcare is not repealed, seniors across America will suffer."

AAN is planning to spend at least $10 million during the 2012 election cycle in districts where there are "competitive House races but state parties with little ability to provide a lift," Politico reported on Sunday. The group already has organizers on the ground in specific districts, and it plans to build out "a broader, issues-specific grassroots network with endurance."

AAN spent $26 million during the 2010 elections.

AAN joins several other conservative non-profit groups that have announced expensive national campaigns in recent days, including Crossroads GPS and Americans for Prosperity.
