New US Chamber ads bash Democratic health plan
The US Chamber of Commerce plans to begin airing its second round of television and radio ads opposing the Democratic health care plan this morning in 21 states.
The ads are aimed mostly at lawmakers who seem undecided. Chamber officials said the campaign would total about the same as the first round of commercials, which began airing about three weeks ago and cost about $7 million.
The ads accuse Democratic leaders of trying to rush the bill through Congress because it would force higher taxes and deeper budget deficits. “The fast sale on government-run health care? No way,’’ an announcer says.
