Hours before Paul "Atlas Shrugged" Ryan debuted bill, Blue Cross/Blue Shield gave him $120 Grand

Hours before Paul "Atlas Shrugged" Ryan did his powerpoint deal, Blue Cross/Blue Shield gave him $120 Grand at a fundraiser. Our WI guys are the worst crooks. I am so sorry they have been foisted upon you.

We have the BEST democracy that money can buy. No debate over that. The U.S. is a scam...did I say that already?

12. Your title is misleading

 

I hate him but Ryan wasn't paid $120K.

The breakfast, according to an invitation, was sponsored by McGuireWoods PAC, the political action committee for the lobbying firm McGuireWoods. Blue Cross Blue Shield pays McGuireWoods $120,000 a year to lobby on changes to health reform, records show. Attendees of the event paid were asked to pitch in as much as $10,000.

14. Figures. I think BC/BS was the inspiration for Grisham's "Great Benefit"

"Great Benefit" was a big health insurance provider that had a secret policy of denying ALL claims over $5000 unless the patient went to court, had big pockets, high powered legal representation, and lived long enough.

If anyone wants a refresher course in how our HMOs imitate the worst that fiction can come up with, read (or re-read) John Grisham's "The Rainmaker." I swear, the fictitious evil, crooked health insurance company, "Great Benefit," provided the blueprints for many health insurers now operating in the USA. No wonder they are throwing money hand over fist at Republicans like Ryan. In their eyes, there is no better investment they can make.

20. Reminds me of this quote from the Simpsons:

"How do you sleep at night?"
"On a pile of money with many beautiful ladies!"
