[Music] Obama (voice over and to camera):  My mother died of cancer at 53.  In those last painful months, she was more worried about paying her medical bills than getting well.  I hear stories like her's every day.

For 20 years Washington's talked about health care reform and reformed nothing.

I've got a plan to cut costs and cover everyone.  But unless we stop the bickering and the lobbyists, we'll be in the same place 20 years from now.

I'm Barack Obama and I approved this message because to fix health care we have to fix Washington.


Notes: Compare to the Clinton ad "Health Care Plan" from a few days earlier.
