New Healthcare Radio Messages

Here are our new radio spots focused on healthcare:

60 second

Hello, this is State Representative Matt Bliss.

Health care costs have gotten out of control in recent years. Many people in our area have shared with me your concerns over soaring deductibles, overwhelming medical bills and uncertainty about whether your coverage will actually be there when you need it most.

I promised to make these issues a top priority when you sent me to the Capitol two years ago and I am proud to have delivered.

  • We ended the crippling cycle of double-digit premium increases.
  • We passed measures helping people to continue seeing their doctor of choice.
  •  We made changes to stop surprise billing.

While I am proud to have delivered on my promise to improve health care in our state, more work remains to deliver the system Minnesotans deserve and restore our state’s status as a national leader.

I am State Rep. Matt Bliss and I remain dedicated to lowering health care costs for you and your family. I would be honored to earn your continued support and vote on Tuesday, November 6th.

New Radio Spots (Audio & Transcripts)

30 Second:

Hi, I am State Representative Matt Bliss.
Two years ago, the residents of District 5A placed their trust in me to put their interest’s first ahead partisan gridlock.
We broke through to rally support for local K-12 education funding, construction of a new student center at BSU, jobs for our region, and especially building a new veterans home in Bemidji.
I am proud of what we have accomplished together for our region and the state of Minnesota.
We have lots more to do so let’s continue to work together to put Northern Minnesota first and keep the momentum going.

 

60 Second:

This is State Representative Matt Bliss.
Two years ago, residents of District 5A placed their trust in me to put their interests first ahead partisan gridlock.  We broke through to rally support for local education funding, more jobs for our region, and support for more than 28,000 regional veterans.
Our local schools received nearly 4 million dollars more in state funding this biennium than before, so we are starting to get our fair share along with additional money to help ease our busing shortfall.
Between funding for a new student center at BSU and some much needed regional transportation and infrastructure funding, we are both investing in the next generation AND creating lots of new LOCAL jobs!
I am especially proud that we finally secured state funding to build a veterans home in Bemidji.  They have long deserved it!
Let’s continue to put Northern Minnesota first because there is plenty more to do in our region and we are showing that by working together and sticking to our values and principles, LOTS of good things happen!

TRANSCRIPT:

Matt:  Hi, I’m candidate Matt Bliss.  I’ve been going all around this district the past few months, meeting people at their doors and at community events. Listening.  Learning.  And sharing my vision for our great state.  I’ll tell you I’m amazed at our people and our stories.  I’m amazed at both the challenges we face and the opportunities for our future.

Recently I was at the door of a retired citizen who seemed defeated and ready to give up.  His property taxes are just too much; he told me he has no choice but to sell his home and property that he worked his whole life for.

Stories like these are heartbreaking, but this is why I’m running for state representative.  We can lower taxes, protect human life, and strengthen our families.  We can do better together.  That’s why I’m asking you to vote for me, Matt Bliss, on Tuesday.  Together we can put Northern Minnesota First.
