VIDEO: AUC up with healthcare ad

Americans United for Change, the labor backed behemoth that appears to have a bottomless bank account, is going up with a new ad on healthcare reform in D.C. this week.

The ad touts a recent Diageo/Hotline poll that found that 62 percent of respondents support "the president enacting a major overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system."

"In the Senate, they call sixty percent support a 'super' majority," the narrator says. "A new poll shows 62 percent of Americans support the President's plan to reform health care. That means lowering costs, so everyone has access to quality, affordable care. Protecting your choice of doctor. Letting you choose between keeping the private insurance you have, and a public health insurance plan."

The ad, of course, serves as a primer for Obama's big healthcare speech to the American Medical Association on Monday.

Check out the ad below. It is going up on D.C. cable on Monday and will air through the end of the week.
