Ad campaign counterattacks against overhaul's critics
A coalition that includes drug companies, doctors, and a big labor union that all favor an overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system opened a $12 million television advertising campaign directed at 12 states. The advertisements are intended to counter the sharp criticism of President Obama's overhaul efforts that has emerged at town-hall-style meetings. Change would have a positive effect, according to the coalition. The commercials are running in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Virginia.
