MoveOn TV Ad Targets Health Insurance Industry (VIDEO)

A new ad by the folks at MoveOn.org targets the health insurance industry. Timed to coincide with the annual conference of America's Health Insurance Plans, an industry trade group, the ad shows patents in doctors' waiting rooms disappearing behind giant piles of money.

An announcer says,"Know what the insurance companies see when they look at you? Money. Which is why they're against the President's healthcare reform."

The Huffington Post was at the AHIP conference yesterday.

A MoveOn press release says the spot will run for a week on cable and in D.C. starting Thursday.


UPDATE 3/12/09: Alert Reader Roger Danielsen writes in to say that the doctor's office shown in MoveOn's ad bears a striking resemblance to the veterinary clinic where Danielsen takes his dogs in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Compare the doctor's office:
