New York governor taking heat for healthcare proposal

New York Times, February 2, 2009

New York's most powerful healthcare interests are mounting a multimillion-dollar media campaign that excoriates Gov. David A. Paterson and his plans to cut funding for hospitals and other healthcare facilities. In television commercials that will begin broadcasting statewide, nurses and patients take a personal swipe at the governor, imploring, "Why are you doing this?" At one point, a nurse says, "I can't believe Governor Paterson is the one making this proposal." Then a man, blind and in a wheelchair, asks the governor, who is legally blind, "Why are you doing this to me?"
