AFP Launching $5.5 Million Ad Effort
ARLINGTON, VA – Today Americans for Prosperity (AFP), the nation’s largest advocate for economic freedom, announced a multi-state ad effort that demonstrates how badly President Obama is out of touch with the real economy.
“When President Obama said the private sector was doing ‘just fine,’ he surpassed his own bad record of being out of touch with the economic challenges Americans are facing. Our new ad demonstrates just how far removed the president is from the real economy,” said AFP President Tim Phillips. “The fact is the private sector is severely hampered by the specter of rising taxes and new regulations.”
Titled Doing Fine, the new ad begins airing today and will run for ten days in Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Doing Fine calls on President Obama to support the AFP Jobs Agenda, which encompasses a number of policies proven to support a vibrant economy and job creation.

This latest ad effort brings the total amount that AFP has spent educating on President Obama’s disastrous policies to $20 million since last Fall.
In addition to this major ad buy, AFP will be conducting grassroots efforts educating citizens on other big spending politicians who support the Obama agenda, including this ad on Senator Tester, which is currently running throughout Montana and is supported by the Tester Truth Tour.
“Big government policies and rampant spending have been a disaster for the country,” continued Phillips. “We urge President Obama to get back in touch with the real economy, and support policies that will help our nation thrive once again.”
