GOP Offers Heath Care Reponse By Rep Who Took $1.2 Mil From Industry
The birther congressman selected to give the Republican response to President Obama’s health care address, Rep. Charles Boustany, has received monies totaling $1,256,056 from “health and insurance interests” since 2004, according to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics.
“There is a conflict of interest when members of Congress stand before the public and recite the same talking points put forth by lobbyists and the heads of insurance and HMO giants opposing health care legislation,” commented David Donnelly, national campaigns director of Public Campaign Action Fund. “Rep. Boustany has taken more than $160,000 in campaign contributions from insurance and HMO interests alone. Do you think he’ll disclose that to his national audience tonight? It’s time to end the money chase and pass the Fair Elections Now Act.”Click here for reuse options!
