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.

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