New six-figure CPR ad buy targets 14 senators

Washington (CNN) - Conservatives for Patient Rights is targeting 14 senators in their latest anti-public option ad, which hits airwaves Monday.

The group, which has spent millions on ads opposing President Obama's health care reform push, says is spending $250,000 on an ad airing on CNN and Fox News pushing centrist Democrats and a Republican to oppose a public option in the health care bill.

"The future of every Americans medical care rests with these 14 senators," says the narrator in the 30-second spot, as the 14 senators' photos and names scroll across the screen. Lawmakers targeted include Democratic Sens. Blanche Lincoln, Mark Pryor, Thomas Carper, Evan Bayh, Mary Landrieu, Jon Tester, Max Baucus, Ben Nelson, Kent Conrad, Byron Dorgan, Jim Webb and Mark Warner, Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman and Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe.

    Wow. Having an option is a bad thing now. The RNC sure has twisted the words choice and freedom to mean bad things. Sad for America the only modern country without health care for all.
