WASHINGTON — Wal-Mart Stores Inc., continuing to burnish its image as a leader in the business community on health care reform, has launched a TV advertising campaign running in the nation’s capital.
The retail giant recently caused a rift in the industry, specifically the National Retail Federation, when it endorsed a controversial employer mandate provision in health reform legislation being drafted on Capitol Hill. But Wal-Mart has scored points with President Obama, longtime critics, neutral observers and even some labor groups for endorsing employer mandates in conjunction with the Service Employees International Union and the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank.
