[Music] Male Announcer: On health care reform, two extremes.

On one end government run health care, higher taxes.

On the other insurance companies without rules, denying coverage.

Barack Obama says both extremes are wrong.  His plan:

Keep your employer paid coverage.
Keep your own doctor.
Take on insurance companies...to bring down costs.
Cover pre-existing conditions and preventive care.

It's common sense for the change we need.

Obama (voiceover): I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message.

Notes: This ad was released on the day that Obama outlined his "New Energy for America Plan" in a speech in Lansing, MI.  McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds responded with this statement:

Notes: This is an interesting graphic interpretation of the health care problem, but it's very one-dimensional.
