Commercial from the American Medical Association to block Medicare cuts and get in touch with Congress. BD
The American Medical Association (AMA) is spending $2 million on television ads this month in a campaign to get Congress to reject a looming cut in its Medicare payments.
The TV spots will run through the July 4th recess in Washington and in areas with large concentrations of older Americans. The AMA would not specify which markets outside of D.C. it is targeting, but the group is willing to extend the campaign to additional regions if Congress does not move toward stopping a 10 percent cut, set to take effect in 2008.
