Earlier this month, Americans for Prosperity — the 501(c)(4) “dark money” group through which Charles and David Koch have spent untold millions trying to undermine health care reform — released a new ad warning against the dangers of Obamacare.

“I think we all deserve some answers,” the young mother featured in the ad says at the conclusion. Well, thankfully for her, Dr. Sanjeev Sriram is here to provide them.

In a response video from the National Physicians Alliance and Americans United for Change, Dr. Sriram dismantles the Americans For Prosperity case piece by piece. It’s almost as if doctors understand the health care system better than right-wing political hacks!

Who do you trust for your health care information? Dr. Sriram, or “Dr.” Koch? Let us know in the comments section.
