PA-9: Shuster Highlights ‘Fight to End Obamacare’ in New Ad (VIDEO)

After his first ad of the year sought to show his conservative values, Congressman Bill Shuster is focusing in on his work against Obamacare in his newest spot.

“What’s the best evidence Washington is broken?” the commercial begins. “Obamacare. Premiums are skyrocketing. Millions of jobs lost. Billions cut from Medicare.”

The spot – titled “Shuster Leading the Conservative Fight to End Obamacare” – goes on to tout his work to introduce a bill to defund the Affordable Care Act and stop the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing the president’s program.

“Thankfully, we have a conservative like Bill Shuster working for us,” the narrator says. “Bill Shuster stood up to the Washington special interests voted against Obamacare and has voted more than 60 times to repeal it.”

Shuster is seeking a 9th term in Congress, but (again) faces a primary challenge from Art Halvorson.

The 9th Congressional District consists of all or parts of Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Huntingdon, Indiana, Somerset, Washington and Westmoreland Counties.

The primary election will be held on April 26th.

  1. Shuster’s version of leadership is the same as Obama’s foreign policy: lead from behind and compromise with everyone.

  2. Headline should be ” Bill Shuster votes to end healthcare for millions of Americans!

  3. What a joke. What you’re really saying is that you’ve FAILED 60 times to accomplish anything.

  4. Bill Shuster has voted four times in the last five years for spending bills that fund Obamacare. The Omnibus Spending Bill in 2011 and the Cromnibus Bill in 2014 are just two examples. He casts 60 safe votes for bills to repeal Obamacare which are doomed to be vetoed on Obama’s desk but when the Democrats wrap Obamacare spending into a big bill with other funding he caves and votes for it – following the Washington establishment like a puppy dog. This TV ad is an outright lie

  5. Sure, let’s go backwards when millions of Americans were without healthcare, and tens of thousands died every year. These anti-healthcare Republicans defy logic.

  6. “MILLIONS of jobs lost.”

    Geez, now they’re not even trying not to lie. Shoulda just said “BILLIONS of jobs lost…seriously you guys….BILLIONS.
