Go to Business Groups Launch Ad Against Health Care Bill - ABC News to read about an anti-health care ad costing between 4 and 10 million bucks to be thrown at "the heart land" starting this week. It's all about why we don't need national health care. It's bought and paid for by . . . well, you can easily guess (hint: not Republican money, they're already bought). A short quote from the article: "Health insurance companies, excoriated by Obama over a recent spate of double-digit premium hikes, are helping to pay for the ads, said Bruce Josten, a top lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, coordinating the campaign." As a member of a "heart land cow town" chamber of commerce, we've never had health care as an item on our monthly agenda. In fact, the most successful thing we've ever done is to promote and host wine tasting evenings in the old down-town district where we get you liquored up on a cheeky little pinot noir or saucy sauvignon, then fleece you at the local art galleries, restaurants, and antique stores as you walk along a designated map. Free rides homes are offered to all participants. Even the mormons have been on board for this event which happens twice a year. But since when did a chamber of commerce need to worry about health care, except to cover it's ancillary employees? All of us, except the secretary and admin exec, have figured pay for our own health care (or, like me, have made other arrangements).
