Conservatives for Patients’ Rights Founder Opposes Democratic Health Care Reform Proposals
The health care multi-millionaire’s group, Conservatives for Patients’ Rights, is going on the air in 11 states, targeting 14 senators (12 Democrats and two Republicans) with pretty standard attacks on government waste and the threat of bureaucrats interfering in medical decisions.
The list of targets is a little bit surprising. Eight of them represent states carried by President Obama in 2008. Only two of them, Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), are currently fending off potential re-election challengers in 2010.
And the ads are not, err, the slickest pieces of filmmaking in history. (Video after the jump.)
