Oklahomans Against 793 new ad: "Walmart Control"

Oklahomans Against 793 release new ad

Oklahomans Against 793 today released a new advertisement in television markets across the state titled, “Walmart Control.” The ad highlights the extraordinary amount of control over the delivery of health care that companies like Walmart would be given should SQ 793 pass. 

As the ad states, SQ 793 would make Oklahoma “the first and only state allowing Walmart to override the authority of the rules that regulate medical practices and protect patient health.”

Watch the full ad below:


Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians (OAOP) Executive Director Joel Robison said the ad works to highlight how far Walmart is overreaching in its attempt to control a medical profession.
“Walmart doesn’t just want to sell glasses,” said Robison. “They want to own doctors, dictate how they can practice and what medical procedures they can perform. Even worse, Walmart executives are working to put all of this in Oklahoma’s Constitution, making it a permanent change that can’t be undone.”

Robison said Oklahoma voters are catching on to Walmart’s deceptive campaign.

“This isn’t about helping seniors or kids, it’s about money,” he said. “It’s about changing the Constitution – our most important legal document – to boost profits for an out-of-state corporation. I think Walmart is going to find out this November that Oklahoma isn’t for sale.”
