We will crush reform today.

Billionaires for Wealthcare
Billionaires Rally Against Health Care Reform
Insurance Industry Billionaires Protest Rockland Group Advocating Socialist Health Insurance Reforms
Nyack, NY – Billionaires for Wealthcare, a for-profit citizens action group of wealthy Insurance company owners and board members, will rally in protest against a socialist “Healthcare for All” rally at Nyack Memorial Park on Sunday, October 4, 2009 from 4:30 PM until they become weary.
They will denounce attempts by Congress to provide lower cost health insurance at the expense of insurance and BigPharma industry profits. “I’m sick of the government interfering with my business and profits just because some silly members of Congress – like Engel, Hall, Lowey, Gillibrand and Schumer – think all Americans should have reasonably priced health care,” said Ms. Meg A. Bucks, Chairperson and CEO of the organization, “Everybody knows rationed healthcare makes for a highly motivated workforce.”
The group will be demonstrating in support of the dedicated efforts of the Republicans in Congress from our region (if only there were any) to protect health insurance profits. “Nobody is more effective than our Republican nay-sayers, er, representatives – and we have too few! – at implementing our strategy for convincing people to take a stand against their own best interest,” remarked R. S. Tocrat, President and CEO of PBP (Profits Before People) Health Insurance Co.
Asked about the plight of the poor and the strain put on working families by rising health care premiums, Ms. Bucks shot back with some social justice rhetoric of her own. “We billionaires are a tiny minority of the population. Democrats like Engel, Hall, Lowey, Gillibrand and Schumer never take our values into consideration. We must stick together and stand up for what we believe in, namely BIG PROFITS. I’m confident that if we can get our people into Congress we will eventually prevail.”
She continued, “But try as we might, we just haven’t been able to purchase any of the Congressional representatives in this region. We need sensible voices in Congress that know the value of money….our money.”
Insurance industry profits have been soaring in recent years, growing much faster than the economy overall. The rapid increase in health care premiums has put enormous pressure on American families. Over 44,000 Americans lose health insurance every day. “It’s been a good ride so far”, Tocrat said. “America has the most profitable health care system in the world. That’s something we should all be proud of. Many have yet to realize that health care is a privilege for the privileged. Make no mistake, this is a class war, and we intend to win it.”

BILLIONAIRES FOR WEALTHCARE
PROTEST ANTI-BILLIONAIRE AGENDA OF MICHAEL MOORE
“PROFITS ALWAYS COME BEFORE PEOPLE,” GROUP SAYS.
Billionaires for Wealthcare, the satirical street theater group composed of “Health Insurance CEOs, HMO lobbyists, and others profiting from our broken health care system,” protested today at the DC premiere of Michael Moore’s new film, “Capitalism: A Love Story.”
The group objects to the unfair depiction of the relentless pursuits of profit over the needs of people as a bad thing. “Mr. Moore obviously has an agenda with this film. He clearly doesn’t want us to continue making oodles of profits by denying and delaying care to those who need it most. That is just unfair to the smallest, most vulnerable minority in America: billionaires,” said health insurance CEO Monet Oliver de Place.
William “Billy” O’Naire said, “For the last decade, heath care costs have been moving in the right direction: up. With no competition, we raise rates as often and as high as we like simply because, well, we can. To further maximize our gains we have a star chamber of insurance bureaucrats, backed by legions of anonymous temps, who adhere to strict cost-to-profit ratios when denying claims. But please don’t call them Death Panels; we prefer ‘Judge, Jury & Executioner.’”
Billionaires in tuxedos and evening gowns protested Michael Moore and his anti-billionaire agenda by singing patriotic paeans to Capitalism (“Battle Hymn of the Insurance Companies”), and pop Champagne while holding placards that read “Let Them Eat Advil”, “Our Death Panels Turn a Profit” and “Fight Socialism: Abolish Medicare Now!”
Billionaires for Wealthcare is a grassroots network of health insurance CEOs, industry lobbyists, talk-show hosts, and others profiting off of our broken health care system. We are not a political, religious or even particularly well-organized group. We’re simple folk, thrilled profiteers pouring out of our corner offices to dance on the grave of “Change.” We’ll do whatever it takes to ensure another decade where America’s pain is our gain. After all, when it comes to healthcare, if we ain’t broke, why fix it?
