Truth in Politics

Here’s a little ad campaign I propose:

Why Joe Wilson and his colleagues don’t want you to enjoy quality health coverage.

Just follow the monied interests of his campaign donations:

Health Professionals $244,196

Leadership PACs $137,599

Lobbyists $117,533

Pharmaceuticals/Health Products $86,150

Insurance $73,050

Hospitals/Nursing Homes $68,000

More corporate donors to Joe Wilson are listed here.

The same site, opensecrets.org, shows 95% of his opponent’s, Rob Miller, contributions from individuals. One can assume that this data will be updated given the 24-hour cycle post “liar” outburst by Wilson during which Miller’s coffers ballooned with more than 18,000 contributions. So have Wilson’s finances boomed and we’ll see from whom.

Now, ask yourself: Whose interests are Joe and his friends protecting? Yours?
