Koch Brothers Group Abandons Anti-Obamacare Ads After Fact-Checkers Prove Them False

David KochThe Koch brothers-funded Americans For Prosperity are still railing against Obamacare.  But their new ads are toned down, which could be a result of the backlash against their older, misleading ads slamming President Obama’s healthcare legislation.

Americans For Prosperity is a leading conservative group that spends millions of dollars attacking liberals.  They’ve taken up the fight against Obamacare, and have funded TV advertisements against Democratic senators.

As Talking Points Memo’s Dylan Scott reports, the new ads from the group--shown in Colorado and Louisiana--are noticeably different than the older ads.  They’re much more general, as opposed to specific personal stories that can be fact-checked.

The older advertisements shown in Michigan were panned for errors.   As Scott writes, “that ad told the story of a cancer patient who had her plan canceled because of Obamacare. But the spot didn't mention that the subject would save at least $1,200 for a new health plan under the law.”
