British women conned into appearing in anti-health reform ads

Two British women who appeared in anti-health reform ads in the United States say they were duped into thinking they were participating in a documentary about health care, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.

"Furious Kate Spall and Katie Brickell claim that their views on the NHS have been misrepresented by a free market campaign group opposed to Mr Obama’s reforms in a bid to discredit the UK system," the newspaper states.

The "free market campaign group" in question is Conservatives for Patients' Rights, which is headed up by Rick Scott, the former head of private health provider Columbia/HCA. Scott was forced out of his position after revelations of billing fraud at the company.
