In a piece for our Febraury print issue, I wrote about how the health care battle would be much different this time around than it was in 1993/94 because conservatives will have few allies in the private sector. Even insurers, who ran the famous “Harry and Louise” ads, for instance, are now willing to cede ground on key issues. Enter Richard Scott, the former head of the Hospital Corporation of America, who has launched a new group, Conservatives for Patients Rights, to demosntrate the consequences of government-run health care and push for a free market alternative based on choice and competition. In the Politico, Jonathan Martin reports on the group’s TV, radio, and web advertising strategy which launched today to coincide with the White House’s health-care week. Scott started the group with $5 million of his own money, but he hopes to raise more and spend up to $20 million on the campaign. Over at TNR, liberal health-care journalist Jonathan Cohn has already dubbed Scott, “Public Enemy Number One.”
