Clinton airs health care TV ad here

Posted by David Postman

Hillary Clinton wants to stress health care in the remaining days until Washington's Democratic caucus. Her campaign just released a new television commercial saying she alone has a "plan to provide health care for every American." And tomorrow as part of her Puget Sound campaign swing, Clinton is expected to hold a health care forum in Tacoma with nurses.

Yesterday, SEIU locals in the state endorsed Barack Obama. The union represents nurses and other health-care workers, and union leaders said they believed Obama had the best chance of enacting meaningful health-care reform if elected president.

Here's the script to Clinton's ad.

Announcer: She fought for universal health care, long before it was popular.

Championed the bill that gave six million kids health insurance

…and pushed the drug companies to lower the cost of vaccinations.

Now, she’s the only candidate for President - Democrat or Republican - with a plan to provide health care for every American.

Just one reason why she's earned the support of Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.

Because health care is a moral obligation, not a privilege.

Saturday. Caucus for Hillary.

Hillary Clinton: I’m Hillary Clinton and I approved this message.
