Finally, some good health care ads

From unions, hitting senators where it hurts. Too bad the ads are only on radio.

ANCR: This is a Public Forum. Our topic today is the health care crisis.

(phone rings)

What luck! Our first caller is a lobbyist for health insurers! You’re on the air.

CALLER: (bombastic voice) What health care crisis? We have the most profitable health care industry in the world. At a time GM is bankrupt and millions of people are losing their jobs, our profits are up 400 percent! (wheeze, snort).

We can’t hire enough clerks to weed out sick people or deny claims! (laugh, snort). Just the other night we had a big party honoring a true healthcare visionary--the guy who came up with...pre-existing conditions!

Sure, Obama won the election. He has the people, but we have the Congress. So long as we have Republicans and corporate Democrats, nothing is gonna change. (laugh, snort)

Is this some wonderful country or not?

ANNCR: In his next town hall meeting,
we need to ask Senator Kent Conrad to explain why he has quality health care and YOU don’t!

What your constituents want to know, Senator Conrad, is...which side are you on?
Stay tuned.
