Edwards To Begin Airing New Ad In Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ Democrat John Edwards will begin airing new campaign advertisements Tuesday focusing on his call to end health benefits for top politicians who don't approve a universal health care plan within six months of the next president taking office.

``When I'm president I'm going to say to members of Congress and members of my administration, including my Cabinet: I'm glad that you have health care coverage and your family has health care coverage,'' Edwards says in the new spot airing in Iowa. ``But if you don't pass universal health care by July of 2009 _ in six months _ I'm going to use my power as president to take your health care away from you.''

The commercial reflects a theme that Edwards sounded at a Democratic fundraising dinner last weekend.
