Press Release



Glen Allen, VA — Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA-07) released a new ad on the Democratic nominee Abigail Spanberger’s plans for health care.

“Obamacare has been a disaster, but Abigail Spanberger would double down and give us far worse: a $32 trillion boondoggle that would double Virginians’ taxes,” said Brat campaign spokeswoman Katey Price.

The new ad will run on television and can be viewed here:


The text of the ad follows below:


I’m Dave Brat, and I approve this message.

PolitiFact called Obamacare the “lie of the year.” Remember, if you like your plan you can keep it? A total lie.

But Abigail Spanberger wants to double down on Obamacare. Her radical plan would actually expand it, creating a taxpayer funded government run health care insurance bureaucracy that would double our taxes by $32 trillion to be exact.

Abigail Spanberger: bad for your health, bad for your wallet.


Background information for ad:

In 2013, PolitiFact gave Obama’s “If you like your plan you can keep it” as its “lie of the year.”


Spanberger said in a May 2018 Democrat primary debate that she supports single-payer health care “in principle.”


Spanberger is publicly campaigning in support of Medicare X. In October 2017, the liberal blog Think Progress called Medicare X the “road to single-payer health care.”


Single-payer healthcare would cost $32 trillion and would result in the doubling of all corporate and individual income taxes to pay for it.
