New Ad: Health Care Bill Will Deprive Seniors Of Care If They’re Not “Worth The Cost”

EDITORS' NOTE: TPM is making our COVID-19 coverage free to all readers during this national health crisis. If you’d like to support TPM's reporters, editors and staff, the best way to do so is to become a member.

Check out this ad from a right-wing group called the 60 Plus Association, celebrating the Greatest Generation — and warning that the health care bill could kill them:

“The government — not doctors — will decide if older patients are worth the cost,” the announcer says, in an echo of Sarah Palin’s “death panel” remarks.

A representative for the group told us that this is a national ad buy, and that the price for it is $1.5 million.
