Mike Williams: Ad misplaces fear

Ad misplaces fear

I have never previously written a letter to the editor, but the Sept 6 news article “Television ad questions new health care law” about Americans for Prosperity spending more than $60,000 in North Carolina to frighten people about their ability to keep their doctors under Obamacare compels me to write now.

The fact that health insurance plans have networks of providers is nothing new. To pretend otherwise is dishonest. How is this fearmongering helpful?
