New MoveOn Ads, Rally, Confront Lincoln For Voting Against Public Option


Ads, Calls, and Events in Arkansas Hold Senator Accountable for Finance Committee Vote


Senator Lincoln, one of three Senate Finance Committee Democrats who voted against Sen. Schumer’s public health insurance option amendment, is the target of an ad campaign in Arkansas. Political Action announced today that they will run radio ads against Senator Blanche Lincoln. In addition to the Schumer amendment, Senator Lincoln voted against a similar Rockefeller amendment, both of which would have created a public health insurance option.


The radio ads will air in Arkansas beginning tomorrow, and call out Senator Lincoln for siding with the insurance industry, which has spent millions of dollars fighting against a public health insurance option, instead of with her constituents.


Tomorrow, Fayetteville residents will also hold a rally outside of Senator Lincoln’s office to protest her vote. The event will feature speakers with stories that demonstrate the need for a public health insurance option.


“The vast majority of Americans want the choice of a public option–the best way to lower costs and expand quality health care to more Americans. Senator Lincoln is out of step with the country and her political party and needs to be held accountable by her constituents,” said Justin Ruben, Executive Director of “MoveOn’s 5 million members expect the Democrats in Congress to deliver on the promise of change that got them elected.”
