New health care attack ad sets the meter on fire

An ad from Americans for Prosperity distorts the Democrats' plan for health care reform.

A new TV ad from Americans for Prosperity, a group opposing the health reform bill, suggests that screening mammograms for women under 50 would be in jeopardy if the health reform bill passes.

"A government panel that didn't include cancer specialists says women shouldn't receive mammograms until age 50," the ad said. "If government takes over health care, recommendations like these could become the law for all kinds of diseases."

We examined the ad in detail and found that wasn't the case; read our complete item for details. We it Pants on Fire.
