Lawyers’ Group Attacks GOP on Medicare Plan

From Times Wire Reports

The Assn. of Trial Lawyers of America has launched a $500,000 television and radio advertising campaign in five congressional districts blaming GOP lawmakers for blocking provisions that would have required Medicare to negotiate with drug companies for the best prescription cost.

The ad campaign targets Republican House members from Pennsylvania, Indiana, New Mexico, Ohio and North Carolina.

Carl Forti, a spokesman for the National Republican Campaign Committee, scoffed at the ad campaign.
