    Looks like the Dems are spending your hard earned tax money to run TV commercials promoting their health care "reforms" Aren't you glad the government has such great use for your money.

    OMG I so know what you mean. We now have a left wing government in power, run by a Welsh born women who did not get the majority vote, it was a few independent individuals who put her into power and not the people of Oz. Who is already breaking her election promise of no admissions tax, guess what we will be getting before the next election, more new tax's. The left wing government of Oz loves to spend the tax payers money, then they just tax us more hitting small business first.

    So once agin we will see a left wing government put us in debut because they just love to spend and throw our hard earned taxes at anything. Then we will have to once agin vote in a conservative government to get all the bills paid, because the cupboards are empty, and we have no savings in the bank because it's all been squandered.
    Seems like the same goes on in the US too.

    You may be my brother but why sould I be your keeper too?

    What are you rambling about? HHS is spending money to educate the citizenry about the actual health care law after tens of millions have been spent in misinformation ads about it.

    Money probably wasted as much of it will be repealed.

    Unlikely, but thanks for playing.

    As opposed to the many more millions spent by Big Pharma trying to tell you that Medicare Part D as enacted by Bush is good (since they can mark up their retail price for a big fat profit), and that reform is not good.
    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1010/43655.htmlThe Obama administration has spent approximately $3 million on TV ads discussing the benefits of health care reform this month — three times what was spent by pro-reform candidates and groups but almost nothing compared with the $21 million spent on anti-reform ads.

    The Department of Health and Human Services insists that the ads are not political and that the spending is in line with what the agency has done in the past to advise seniors about the open enrollment period for Medicare Advantage and prescription drug coverage plans, which begins Nov. 15.
