Women's group airs ad criticizing health care law


NEW YORK (AP) — A conservative women's group has launched a $6 million ad campaign in presidential battleground states criticizing President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

Concerned Women for America announced the ad campaign Wednesday. The 60-second spot features a family physician warning that patients may be denied care under the new law and might not be able to choose their own doctor.

The ad will run in top presidential battleground states including Iowa, New Hampshire, Virginia and Wisconsin. It also will air in Minnesota and New Mexico, two states not considered quite as competitive.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule this month on whether the health care law— particularly the so-called individual mandate requiring everyone to purchase health insurance — is constitutional.
