The First Review of President Obama Health-Care Ad is In

I might have seen the ad this morning in west Tennessee. I was at my sister’s house and she has Direct TV and I have no idea what channel it was on.


What struck me was the scene of a child on a swing with the voiceover saying he would not get the chemotherapy he needed. Memphis is home to St. Jude Hospital. I suppose Obama thinks no one knows about it, but it is a premier childhood cancer research center. No one has to pay for treatment. They even pay for patients to be flown to Memphis for treatment. I think that if you have private insurance they will bill the insurance, but no child is turned away because the family cannot pay for treatment.

So much for Dems ending the “politics of fear.”
