The ads are the brainchild of Rick Scott, founder of a group called Conservatives for Patients' Rights. Scott, a multimillionaire investor and controversial former hospital chief executive, has become an unlikely and prominent leader of the opposition to healthcare reform plans that Congress is expected to take up later this year.
