Andy Griffith pitches health care law in TV ads
San Francisco Chronicle

Actor Andy Griffith has a new role: pitching President Barack Obama’s health care law to seniors in a cable television ad paid for by Medicare.

The TV star – whose role as sheriff of Mayberry made him an enduring symbol of small-town American values – tells seniors that “good things are coming” under the health care overhaul, including free preventive checkups and lower-cost prescriptions for Medicare recipients.
