New Faught TV Ad: Mullin in his own words

In His Own Words: Mullin Advocates for
Single-Payer Healthcare
New Faught Ad Reveals Explosive Video 

Muskogee, OK – The George Faught for Congress campaign launched a new television ad this week, sharply contrasting the differences between he and his runoff opponent Markwayne Mullin on healthcare.

Titled "Repeal ObamaCare," the ad highlights Faught's record of leading the successful fight to defeat the first wave of ObamaCare in Oklahoma – the $54 million federally funded health insurance exchange – and his commitment to fully repeal and defund ObamaCare in Congress. The ad also features video of Markwayne Mullin in his own words advocating a single-payer healthcare plan. On August 16, 2011 at a McIntosh County GOP meeting, Mullin publicly stated: “I think a single-payer, single-pay system would be the best.” The ad began airing Tuesday.

Script for "Repeal ObamaCare:”

Voiceover: I'm George Faught and I approve this message.
When it comes to supporting government-run, single-payer healthcare, Markwayne Mullin and Barack Obama agree:
Markwayne Mullin: "I think a single-payer, single pay system would be the best."
Barack Obama: "I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer universal healthcare plan."
Voiceover: We need to repeal ObamaCare, not elect Republicans like Mullin who support single-payer health care.
George Faught led the fight that killed the first wave of ObamaCare in Oklahoma and he’ll repeal it in Congress. 
Markwayne Mullin: "I think a single-payer, single pay system would be the best."

George Faught made the following statement about the campaign’s new ad:

"The stakes are too high for Republicans to nominate a candidate who is on record advocating government-run universal health care. Oklahomans have a clear choice in this runoff election: a conservative with a proven record of standing up to Obama or an inexperienced candidate who, despite a slick media campaign designed by consultants to create an image, declares in his own words his support of a plan to allow the government to take away our freedom of healthcare choices. This issue along with other swirling controversies demonstrates that Mullin is a flawed candidate who cannot win." 

Staunchly pro-life, pro-business, and pro-limited government, George Faught has been endorsed by Gov. Mike Huckabee, Oklahoma State Auditor Gary Jones, Gun Owners of America, David Barton, the Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Association, Family Research Council Action PAC, Concerned Women PAC, Eagle Forum and Phyllis Schlafly, Citizens United Political Victory Fund, and many other conservative groups and individuals.

Longtime owner and operator of a successful carpet cleaning business, Faught and his wife of almost 30 years, Becky, live in Muskogee, and are the parents of three grown children - all born and raised in Muskogee.  In 2006, Faught became the first Republican ever elected to the State House in his Muskogee-based district.
