Chamber of Commerce Targets Public Option In Anti-Health Care Reform Ad Campaign

Views

Here’s a new anti-health care reform ad from the Chamber of Commerce, going live today in 20 key states, which attacks the public option.

The ad also warns of “big tax increases, even on health benefits” though a tax health care benefits hasn’t been officially proposed. The TV spot will be accompanied by a radio segment, which you can listen to here. And for more information on the cost of the buy, and the its likely targets, see The Plum Line.

For a bit of perspective, recall that though the Chamber has dedicated plenty of resources to attacking health care reform efforts, it’s also explicitly commended the slow pace and watered down ideas coming out of the Senate Finance Committee.
