Spitzer Consultants Cut Health Care Ad

Some of the television commercials slamming Eliot Spitzer’s health care spending plan were made by Roberto Ramirez and Luis Miranda, consultants who helped elect him, according to an informed reader.

The ad, which I haven’t seen yet, shows footage of a busy emergency room and suggests there could be long lines there if Spitzer’s plan is enacted, according to my source. It’s running on Channel 47.

Between November 2004 and November 2005, Ramirez and Miranda, who run Mirram Global LLC, were paid around $13,000 from Spitzer Paterson 2006

A spokesman for 1199 declined to comment and a message left for Ramirez and Miranda at their Manhattan office was not immediately returned.
