Effective way to get their message across?

A Cincinnati couple has bought ads on billboards attacking the Presidents health care mandate.

Do you think this is an effective way to get their message across?

Do you think these billboards will make a difference?

"Attacking" seems like a harsh word for pointing out a truth of Obamacare.

I think it's wonderful that they have the funds to put behind their opinion.  Many don't.  I'd rather private citizens put out billboards than super-pacts that nobody knows exactly who is putting out the message.

I've read there are 30 or so lawsuits filed all over the nation over the mandates imposed by Obamacare.  This isn't an isolated belief.

I think since this has already gone to the supreme court and the decisions made are final there are better ways to spend ones money. That being said it's not my money, my position to judge and we're all entitled to our opinions and beliefs. If they're that passionate about it i don't see how it can hurt anything. Do i think it's a waste of funds, yes. Do i think it's an effective method, probably. Do i think they will make a difference, no. But again, it can't hurt.

I think people need to STFU and stop trying to convince others to think like them. I wonder how many peoel they could have helped, with the cost of th ebillbaord. But hey, they are to busy being selfish about THEIR RIGHTS!

Billboards are a pretty effective way to reach people, especially billboards like those. I dont know if it will make a difference, but it is attention grabbing.

I think it would just be a bit harsh.

My mom always says 'I may not agree with you but I defend with my life your right to feel that way"

It's not like Obamacare supporters aren't out there telling us why they're right.If you allow one side a voice you need to allow the other or you're stepping on everything dear to our democratic republic's founders

I do think it will make a difference. Maybe not with this election but just the fact that people are tired of campaign ads and are doing there own thing.... I think its a great idea!

I think billboards are a bit trashy, honestly.
