The Center for Responsive Politics released a list of what each obstructing Congressman was paid by the Healthcare sector. It is spending a total of 1,400,000 PER DAY to destroy the Public Option--the only real chance of reform.
Primarily Republicans are the takers, of course, but several Democrats as well. The Dem leading the charge against it is Max Baucus, who gets millions from them himself. Most Congressmen are bought for under 500,000. This is money the healthcare sector takes from patients to fund the "con game" of our sleazy health care system alive so a select few can get well while another select few can make an obscene amount of money.
The list is as shocking as the statements these so-called representatives make. Hey Thune, if you hate the government paying for health care so much, are you going to drop your generous "socialized medicine" package the taxpayers give you Senators?
Keith Olbermann brought his A game for this one....everyone should watch:
