Insurance Mafia Punishes Wayward Congressman
At least they didn’t break his legs. YET.
Rep. Anh Cao (R—Louisiana) was the only Republican in the House to vote for the Democratic health care reform bill. Cao’s district is heavily Democratic; he was William Jefferson’s replacement. His constituents told him to vote Yes on health care reform; Vinnie and Luigi told him to vote No. What to do.
Since his treasonous Yes vote, Cao’s political bribes, er, “campaign contributions,” have dropped by 40 percent. You happy now, Commie? That’ll teach you to snub the HMOsa Nostra. Watch your back.
And just how wealthy is the Insurance Mafia? They’re sooo well-off — one of their “companies” paid more than a million dollars a year to 39 of its highest ranking thugs.
Yes, that would be WellPoint, which owns Anthem Blue Cross. Million-dollar bonuses, mansions, yachts, luxury company “retreats” — What was the secret of their success? All they had to do was drop coverage for tens of thousands of sick people. Ah, the rewards of hard work.
Henry Waxman said: “Corporate executives at WellPoint are thriving, but its policyholders are paying the price.”
If you have a loved one who died from lack of medical care — thank a Republican.
