Conservatives for Patient’s Rights was recently formed to counter President Obama and democrat’s move to socialized healthcare. The organization is dedicated to educating and informing the public about the principles of patients rights and, in doing so, advancing the debate over health care reform. Those principles include choice, competition, accountability and responsibility.
Here is one of their ads that is playing on television:
Of course, the media had to demonize the group and what better way to enrage the Far Left than to link this group to the hundreds of honest Swiftboat Vets who opposed antiwar veteran John Kerry in the 2004 election.
The Washington Post leads the charge:
Scott, a multimillionaire investor and controversial former hospital chief executive, has become an unlikely and prominent leader of the opposition to health-care reform plans that Congress is expected to take up later this year. While disorganized Republicans and major health-care companies wait for President Obama and Democratic leaders to reveal the details of their plan before criticizing it, Scott is using $5 million of his own money and up to $15 million more from supporters to try to build resistance to any government-run program.

The campaign is being coordinated by CRC Public Relations, the group that masterminded the “Swift boat” attacks against 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry, and is inspired by the “Harry and Louise” ads that helped torpedo health-care reform during the Clinton administration.
“Everybody wants to say I’m against Obama’s plan, but I’m not necessarily,” Scott said in an interview last week. “The bottom line is that this is happening fast, and there is not much of a debate going on about what will happen if we go down this path.”
It’s really getting hard these days to differentiate between articles published by the mainstream media and articles published at the DNC website.
What a shame.
