Groups take health-reform debate to airwaves

Washington Post, August 5, 2009

Groups on all sides of the health reform debate are pouring tens of millions of dollars into advertising campaigns designed to push the cause forward, slow it down, or stop it. Drugmakers, labor unions, both national political parties, and health insurance companies are all weighing in with significant ad buys. Nationwide, more than $52 million has been spent this year on healthcare reform-related ads, according to the Campaign Media Analysis Group.
