Madison -- “The Lie of the Year” is a new statewide television advertisement released today by Governor Scott Walker’s campaign. The 30-second spot focuses on Mary Burke’s unequivocal support for Obamacare and her desire to expand the unpopular law in Wisconsin. President Obama’s statement, If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, was infamously dubbed 2013’s “Lie of the Year” by Politifact.
“Mary Burke can dodge being seen with President Obama, but it doesn’t change her unequivocal support for Obamacare which has forced millions to lose their doctors and their health care plans,” Press Secretary Alleigh Marré said. “Burke wants to expand Obamacare even after we’ve witnessed unmitigated disasters in the states that chose to do so. Wisconsin can’t afford to go backward with Mary Burke.”
