In attacking Obama health care law, GOP website ad plays with audio from Supreme Court hearing
WASHINGTON (AP) ' A website ad from the Republican National Committee edits audio from the Supreme Court hearing on the health care law to exaggerate Solicitor General Donald Verrilli's struggle to find the words to defend the law.
The ad plays audio from Tuesday's arguments on the constitutionality of the mandate that all Americans have health care insurance. As Verrilli speaks, the GOP ad flashes the words: "ObamaCare. It's a tough sell."
Verrilli did indeed interrupt his opening remarks to take a drink of water, and he did stumble over his words at times. However, the RNC ad combines and compresses those moments and adds a second pause and drink of water.
An email sent to the RNC for comment was not immediately answered Thursday night.
