The Cost of Healthcare Reform... um, Bribes

By Tegrain via Mock Paper Scissors
So what does it cost the lobbyists to buy Senators? Who knew that you could buy a Senator for as little as $160,000? Olympia, we’ve already established your morals, we’re just quibbling over the price.
These are the contributions that the so-called Gang of Six have received over the years from the insurance companies and big pharma. And these are the Senators who are striving to find a compromise for healthcare reform.

Just as a side note, the percentage of the population that these 6 Senators allegedly represent, total, amounts to 2.74% of the US.
Call Senator Snowe today: (202) 224-5344
Tell her that we want a public option, not some bullshit co-op or "trigger" that will do something (probably nothing) in the future. Public Option now. The medical industrial complex are not her constituents, we are. She works for us, not them. Give her a call and remind her who she works for. It's easy. Just dial the effin' phone!
