The NYT is covering the unveiling of a series of ads - focused on John McCain and other Republicans, and their stands on health care. The ads are produced by Health Care for America Now
In an article entitled Ads Criticize McCain, Republicans on Health Care the Times reports:
An independent group is spending more than $4 million to go on the air with a series of television advertisements aimed at Senator John McCain and seven Congressional candidates on the issue of health care.
The commercials, which were paid for by the group Health Care for America Now, assert that Mr. McCain and his fellow Republicans support "health care plans and policies that would leave millions of Americans on their own to fight the insurance industry."
In the 30-second spot on Senator McCain, titled "Fighter," a woman says, "I've never faced an enemy like cancer. But it's O.K. I'm a fighter. Under John McCain's health care plan, 20 million could lose their insurance at work -- I could be one of them."
Here's the McCain ad:
