Not shying away from the issue or memories of her experience with health care reform in the 1990's, Hillary Clinton today launched a new ad in Iowa and New Hampshire promoting the health care proposal she laid out yesterday. Rather than trying to forget what could be viewed as a negative for her campaign, the ad starts right out with a reference to her push as First Lady in 1993.
Text of the ad: "She changed our thinking when she introduced universal health care to America. She changed the lives of six million kids when she championed the bill that gave them health insurance. And she changed future generations by pushing the drug companies to lower the cost of vaccinations. Now she has a health care plan that lets you keep your coverage if you like it, provides affordable choices if you don't and covers every American. So if you¹re ready for change, she's ready to lead."
