New Online Ads: Blanche Lincoln vs. Sick Arkansans

FDL_Blanche_Lincoln_300x250The same day Senator Blanche Lincoln was on the floor of the Senate saying she’ll vote against any health care bill with a public option, thousands of uninsured Arkansans were in Little Rock for a free health care clinic.

Many at the clinic had seen a doctor just a handful of times in their lives. One patient was so ill a gurney and ambulance transport was immediately called. This, in America. In the capitol of Arkansas, the state Blanche Lincoln represents in the Senate.

We decided to show this contrast in the most clear way possible: a video pitting Blanche Lincoln’s floor speech with the videos of sick Arkansans taken at the free health clinic. It doesn’t stop there though: FDL Action PAC is going to run online ads in Arkansas and DC, drawing a sharp divide between Blanche Lincoln and her sick constituents.

You can see one of the ads at the top right of this post. When people click through, they’ll be brought to a page with the following video.

It’s a brutal reality, and shows the clear need for Blanche Lincoln to support a public option.
