Today’s Politico reports that Conservatives for Patient Rights is launching a million dollar television advertising campaign focusing on the pitfalls of government-run health care systems.

The ads are reported to feature British and Canadian physicians talking about the problems that patients experience due to their nations’ systems.

Conservatives for Patient Rights is headed by former Columbia/HCA CEO Rick Scott, who featured prominently in the federal investigation of improper Medicare claims by Columbia that led to a $1.7 billion settlement. Scott presented his views on reform in a controversial March 2009 article in The Health Care Blog—one that generated scores of comments ranging from enthusiastic support to virulent opposition.
