New ad urges Kagen to vote no on healthcare

Kevin mentioned this the other day, and news of it showed up on my google alert this morning. The League of American Voters has a new ad that will run in Green Bay urging Kagen to vote no on the healthcare reform legislation and urging voters in the area to call Kagen's office.

I couldn't find a copy of the actual ad on line, but a statement about the ad along with the script can be found here. This is from the statement:
"Congressman Kagen, if you think you've got trouble now back home in your district, cast the deciding vote for Obamacare," said Bob Adams, executive director for the League of American Voters. "If you want to protect seniors from $500 billion in Medicare cuts, vote 'No'. If you want to stop job-killing tax increases on working families in the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, vote 'No'."
This is a portion of the script of the ad:

Announcer: America said "slow down"

Graphic: "58% Oppose the Obama Plan." – Rasmussen Report, 1/22/10

Announcer: But now Pelosi and Obama are at it again, and they want Kagen as the deciding vote, in a last minute deal to takeover your healthcare.

Graphic: Call Steve Kagen at (920) 437-1954

Announcer: Call Steve Kagen and tell him to vote "No" on the Obama-Pelosi Plan.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if the LAV asked me I would tell them they are probably wasting their money. It's hard to tell how widespread it is, but there is definitely a sense that Kagen is completely immune to the wishes of many of his constituents.
