unassuming voice and mannerisms exposing the maneuvering by the
Whitehouse, Nancy Pelosi and members of Congress to kill HR 676, single
payer healthcare. Click here to view the video. Click here to view photos of the event. Conyers had this to say to the the folks attending the event: "What
kind of Healthcare are we going to get?" I'm here to predict you get
the kind of healthcare you deserve, not the kind you ought to have, not
the kind that you want, but it's all going to depend on you." Conyers had this to say about Barack Obama: " We seem to be getting an inordinate amount of reverse advice giving." "Well,
listen to Amy Goodman." She's got the tapes of him making some of the
most brilliant remarks in Support of HR 676 that anybody has ever made,
but he ain't making them now."
Dr. Payne I'm sure Mr. Stivers appreciates your diagnosis of him being crazy. Hell the price is right, you didn't charge a thing. Jake I'm with you as far as Jack Conway goes. I think he's a great candidate and he's always treated me with great respect and the same goes for Daniel Mongiardo. I hope my good relationship with Jack Conway is not threatening to you, surely you are above that kind of stuff, but just in case you aren't, I have this to say "get over it." We have two great candidates running in this Democratic primary and I'm not going to do anything knowingly to hurt either one of them, because I realize that anything I say or do may be used against them in the general election. The people on the street know me and my real intentions and realize when they are being spun by those that have an agenda, so keep it up, it's great for my web stats. Jake I'm sure we will get to talk abut this stuff in person during this long campaign and to tell you the truth, I just can't wait for that. Hell, who knows I might even get a video interview, smile your on candid camera. BTW Jake I have a beautiful video of Jack Conway if you want to see it. Just click here.

Health insurers bulk up 1Q spending on lobbying The five largest private insurers and the trade group America's Health Insurance Plans spent a total of $6.4 million in the first quarter, an increase of more than $1 million from the same quarter last year. The industry is working to counter proposals endorsed by the White House that would offer a government insurance option for millions of Americans. Indianapolis-based WellPoint Inc. and Louisville, Ky.-based Humana Inc. both saw first-quarter spending rise 16 percent to $1.2 million and $370,000, respectively. Spending for Philadelphia-based Cigna Corp. nearly doubled to $450,000 in the first quarter from a year ago.
