WOWT running fraudulent ad about nonexistant GOP plan to replace Obamacare

(Via the Washington Post)
"Imagine a new path forward,” a narrator says over images of happy families and smiling doctors, not to mention Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). “Health insurance that provides more choices and better care at lower costs, a system that puts patients and doctors in charge, that provides peace of mind to people with preexisting conditions, and paves the way for new cures by eliminating senseless regulations.
    House Republicans have a plan to get there without disrupting existing coverage, giving your family the health care it deserves.
     House Republicans haven't advanced any such plan, but the ad is running in Omaha on WOWT targeting new GOP Rep. Don Bacon. It's also running (till the end of January) in the districts of GOP Reps. Rod Blum (Iowa), Mike Coffman (Colo.), Barbara Comstock (Va.), Carlos Curbelo (Fla.), Jeff Denham (Calif.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Bob Goodlatte (Va.), Will Hurd (Texas), Darrell Issa (Calif.), Steve Stivers (Ohio), Mac Thornberry (Texas), Patrick J. Tiberi (Ohio), David Valadao (Calif.) and Greg Walden (Ore.)
     The million-dollar compaign comes from The American Action Network, a 501(c)(4) group affiliated with the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC and run by key GOP establishment figures, according to the Washington Post.
      The TV ad promotes a website,
     Go there, and you'll see a video of the same broadcast TV ad, followed by this:
House Republicans have a plan to get there
Our Congress is fighting for us: lowering costs, providing more control and more choices to pick a plan that meets our needs, not a plan that Washington mandates.
     Alongside the above, a form to collect details about you (your name, email address, and zip code) as well as a button labeled "I'm in."
      What you won't see is a single detail about the famously nonexistant GOP substitute for Obamacare.
