Millions spent to sway Democrats on healthcare

New York Times, March 15, 2010

A coalition of groups opposing healthcare legislation, led by the United States Chamber of Commerce, is singling out 27 Democrats who supported the healthcare bill last year and 13 who opposed it. The organizations have already spent $11 million on advertising against the campaign this month focusing on these lawmakers, with more spending to come before an expected vote next weekend. An alliance of groups supporting the healthcare plan, which works closely with the White House and Democratic leaders, had been spending far less and focusing on fewer districts, the New York Times reports.
