The Latest in 1199’s Stop Spitzer Campaign

1199 SEIU and the Greater New York Hospitals Association are going up with a pair of anti-Spitzer-agenda ads contrasting the profitable state of health care corporation with the desperate financial state of health care facilities.

From one of the ads: “Governor Spitzer wants to reform health care and he’s right. But Spitzer’s plan does it the wrong way.”

A spokesman for 1199 wouldn’t say how much they’re spending to air the spots, but said that the buy would be “significant and statewide.”
