Six US Senators Sell Out Constituents for $11 Million from Health Industry

A bipartisan group of six “moderate” US senators, dubbed the “Gang of Six” by news agencies, issued a demand July 17 for a slowdown on Democratic health care reform. These senators – including three conservative Democrats, one conservative Independent who caucuses with Democrats, and two moderate Republicans – asked for a slowdown on health care reform not because their constituents wished it so: recent polls show that a clear majority of Americans want health care reform now including a public health care option such as that proposed by President Obama and progressives in Congress. No, these senators asked for a slowdown on health care reform because the for-profit health, insurance, and pharmaceutical industries have bid them to do so in the hope that reform can be stopped, and because these same industries have generously provided them with career campaign contributions totalling more than $11 million.

Tell Congress – Throw the Money Changers Out of the Temple

TV MOYERS NOWBill Moyers’ PBS show featured Wendell Potter, the insurance executive whose conscience bothered him so much he is now telling the truth about the insurance industry’s rape of American health care.  Nothing Mr. Potter says is news, but he tells a story that Congress needs to hear again and again: insurance companies take our money just to deny us our health care, and they pay off Washington insiders to keep them in business.

bribes

Bill Moyers’ essay from that show exposes the shameless way that your Senators and Representatives have conducted your business behind closed doors, doing the bidding of lobbyists for powerful industries.  Remind your legislators that you are watching and that some day you and your neighboring voters will have had a bellyful of Washington insiders who inhabit the temple infested by the moneychangers.  Tell them the day of reckoning is coming.  Tell them that one day soon, the moneychangers and their sycophantic dependents will be driven from the temple.  Tell them: Congressman, Senator,  this means YOU.

Tell Him Off For His Arrogance

When a constituent asked Iowa Sen. Charles “Chuck” Grassley why he couldn’t have health care as good as Grassley receives, the senator arrogantly replied that the man could have such a deal — ‘just get a job with the federal government’ said the Senator.

health justice

What an arrogant jerk!  And remember, this is the best buddy of Baucus.  This is the Republican that Baucus has in mind when he says he wants a ‘bipartisan’ solution.  If this attitude doesn’t betray the fakery behind the insurance company bailout called health ‘reform’  then I don’t know what will.

Blast Baucus and Grassley and the White House with faxes telling Grassley off for his arrogance.  If you are from Iowa, let him know that you have him in your sights and you will vote him out of office when you can.  If you are not from Iowa, let him know that you still regard him as a shameful example of the slugs that have inherited power in Washington.

Be aware.  This fax template is NOT POLITE.  If you want polite, and think polite works, this one is not for you.  You can edit it, but it’s hard to tell off a jerk in polite terms, especially if you are mad.   Polite and begging don’t much work anymore…

Send your fax to Grassley today. LINK
