The Family Research Council is out with a new anti-healthcare reform ad, which argues that the Democratic plans are too expensive but avoids any mention of their abortion provisions.

Should a Christian group like the Family Research Council be expected to base its policy positions on the Bible or religious tradition, or is this kind of fiscal-based attack fair game?

Watch the ad, and post your thoughts:

The ad begins airing today on cable in Washington, D.C., and will soon be up in five states: Nebraska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Maine.
