WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Democratic National Committee will release a new television ad Tuesday touting President Obama's efforts to reform the nation's health care system as he travels this week from the Northeast to the Rocky Mountain West.
"President Obama's plan will end unfair insurance practices like denying coverage for a pre-existing condition, outrageous out-of-pocket expenses, and dropping coverage when you get too sick," a narrator says in the 30-second commercial. "Health insurance reform means your family's care comes first, not insurance industry profits."
A DNC spokesman tells CNN that the ad will run on national cable, as well as on local cable in New Hampshire, Montana, Colorado and the District of Columbia. Obama will hold a health care town hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Tuesday, before heading out west to Montana and Colorado.
