    Campaign Against Obama Health Plan Run By Notorious Conservative PR Firm

    By Elana Schor - March 3, 2009, 5:55PM

    A new group called Conservatives for Patients Rights (CPR) is about to launch the opening salvo in the fight to sink President Obama's health care plan.

    CPR is running TV, radio, and web ads that attempt to stoke irrational fears of "a central national board" in charge of medical decision-making, asking Americans to envision a world where "bureaucrats decide the treatments you receive, the drugs you take, even the doctors you see." Of course, that vision has nothing to do with the president's health care plan, but the truth shouldn't be an impediment to CPR's dream of killing health care reform.

    After all, the group has hired Creative Response Concepts, the same PR firm that represented the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth during the 2004 presidential race. The "media relations" contact number listed on CPR's website, (703) 683-5004, is the same phone number as Creative Response Concepts, as one liberal organization discovered when researching the new health care group.

    Creative Response's past clients also include the Christian Coalition, the right-leaning National Taxpayers Union, and USANext, the front group that led George W. Bush's failed push to privatize Social Security. Hilariously, Politico could only bring itself to observe that CPR has hired "veteran Republican consultants" for its new anti-Obama effort.

    They already do and it's called health insurance companies. Stupid fearmongering idiots.

    I wonder how much the insurance companies are paying this PR firm?

    It's incredible how hellbend the Repugs are to run America into the ground (and the rest of the planet with it).

    Why spend tax money on saving lives when you could spend it killing them in wars and then throwing parties for yourself?? These people can't see beyond the tips of their own greedy fingers.
