Conservative group launches House ads hitting Obamacare Web site glitches

October 23, 2013

The conservative group Americans for Prosperity is going up with ads in several House districts highlighting the glitches on the Obama adminstration's new health-care exchanges Web site.

The ads thank Reps. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.) and Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) for opposing the health-care law, known as the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare, and attack Reps. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.) and Scott Peters (D-Calif.) for declining to oppose it.

The ad features a computer screen with the message "Your healthcare is offline."

"What if later, bigger glitches prevent my family's access to care?" a narrator asks in the ad against Barber.

The TV, radio and Web ads are part of a multi-wave campaign totaling more than $2 million, according to AFP.

The districts of the four congressmen listed above are among the most competitive in the 2014 election.
