Second Obama Ad Of Day Blasts McCain Health Tax Plan

The Obama campaign is up with their second ad of the day targeting John McCain's plan to tax individual health benefits.

While the first ad focused on Sarah Palin's inability to explain McCain's health tax plan, this ad goes straight at the core issue: that John McCain is proposing -- for the first time ever -- to tax health benefits.

If this message sinks in with voters, it will cause a real problem for McCain, whose health care plan -- including provisions that would gut employer-based health care -- is one of the most radical elements of his agenda.
