The Billionaires for Wealthcare showered Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell with real bills on behalf of the insurance industry for the GOP’s extraordinary attempts to kill health care reform. The Billionaires met McConnell as he left his appearance on Face the Nation at CBS News in DC.
“Senator McConnell, thank you for all your hard work – here’s a little something extra from the insurance industry” The Billionaires shouted as they tossed their bills. “Vote ‘no’ to kill healthcare reform and there’s more on the way”
The event capped off the nation’s tumultuous health care debate, which saw every member of the GOP attempt to thwart reforms that would lower costs, increase access and end atrocious industry practices.
“We’ve been spending over $5 million per week to kill healthcare reform” said health insurance executive Clay M. Denyed. “We’re glad to finally go public with our support. Besides, confetti is cheap – we know that only money means anything to the GOP.”
