No. Have given away all my dimes. Go ask the US Chamber of
Commerce to support your cause. They seem to have alot of money
these days...from the insurance industry.
"That money, between $10 million and $20 million, came from
Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Kaiser Foundation Health Plans,
UnitedHealth Group and Wellpoint, according to two health care
lobbyists familiar with the transactions. The companies are all
members of the powerful trade group America's Health Insurance
The funds were solicited by AHIP and funneled to the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce to help underwrite tens of millions of dollars of
television ads by two business coalitions set up and subsidized
by the chamber. Each insurer kicked in at least $1 million and
some gave multimillion-dollar donations."
Seems to me that there are making great strides via
healthcare "reform" to obtain trillions of our tax dollars to
bring 30 million more people into an already broken system with
the money going to insurers....on your dime!
