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
Pharmaceuticals/Health Products $86,150
Hospitals/Nursing Homes $68,000
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?
