And now a commercial message:
“A lot of people have been saying mean things about the Democrats’ plan to overhaul health care in the United States. These people haven’t even seen the plan yet. It’s not even written, and they’re against it.
“Write your members of Congress. Tell them you are in favor of the Democrats’ plan to overhaul health care.
“Paid for by the Democratic Committee of Faithers.”
The New York Times reports, less fancifully:
Supporters of Mr. Obama’s plan to overhaul the system have vastly outspent opponents, with $24 million worth of advertising, compared with $9 million from opponents. An additional $24 million has been broadly spent in support of overhauling the system without backing a specific plan.
Unfortunately, the supporters’ real ads are about as specific as the dreamed-up version.
