Obama: McCain Tax Health Care Benefits “Radical”


The Land of Lincolner launches a multifaceted attack on his rival’s health care plan in Newport News, Virginia Saturday.

“He taxes health care benefits for the first time in history; millions lose the health care they have; millions pay more for the health care they get; drug and insurance companies continue to profit; and middle class families watch the system they rely on begin to unravel before their eyes.”

His camp also echoes the message in four new TV ads, four separate mailers, and radio commercials in every battleground state. Watch ad released Saturday here.

McCain camp responds: “Barack Obama is lying to voters.” Statement here.
