The Obama administration has made a $700,000 national cable ad buy, featuring Andy Griffith, according to a report by Politico.com.

“With the new health care law, more good things are coming — free checkups, lower prescription costs and better ways to protect us and Medicare from fraud,” Griffith says in the advertisiment that is currently running on CNN, Weather Channel, Lifetime and Hallmark.

• A Recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll shows that over one-third of seniors believe that the law allows for death panels or “allow a government panel to make decisions about end-of-life care for people on Medicare.” 

• Forty-six percent of seniors surveyed viewed the law unfavorably, compared with 38 percent who viewed it favorably.
