Health Care Reform Advocates Launch New TV Ads 

Folks may notice some new television ads in favor of healthcare reform.The Maine People’s Alliance, Change that Works Campaign, and members of the Maine Health Care for America Now Coalition have launched the ads. They urge Senator Olympia Snowe to support real reform and a public option.The ads feature a woman who is a cancer survivor and afraid of losing her insurance coverage if she changes jobs and a man who owns a business and can’t afford to provide healthcare insurance to his employees.” We want to make sure medical decisions are made between doctors and patients. And that people have the comfort and security to know that there’s always going to be healthcare coverage there. If they go through a job change, lose their job or if they have to make a different career move they can do so confidently knowing there will always be an insurance option.”Goode says their stories are stories heard all throughout Maine.
