$$$$ Who’s Buying Drinks For Martha? $$$$
There was a little party for Martha down in DC this afternoon, You and I weren’t invited, – it cost $1,000.oo just to get in. But almost everybody there was paying for the BIG ticket – $10,000.oo.
It’s a trendy little wine café called Sonoma on Pennsylvania Avenue not far from the Capitol. The who’s who of the health care industry came to buy their 6oth vote. We must therefore conclude that they know Martha’s vote is for sale.
Per Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner, here are some of Coakley fundraiser hosts with some of their current health care clients:
Thomas Boggs, Patton Boggs: Bristol-Myers Squibb
Chuck Brain, Capitol Hill Strategies: Amgen, BIO, Merck, PhRMA
Susan Brophy, Glover Park Group: Blue Cross, Pfizer
Steven Champlin, Duberstein Group: AHIP, Novartis, Sanofi-Aventis
Licy Do Canto, Raben Group: Amgen
Gerald Cassidy, Cassidy & Associates: U. Mass Memorial Health Care
David Castagnetti, Mehlman, Vogel, Castagnetti: Abbot Labs, AHIP,
Astra-Zenaca, General Electric, Humana, Merck, PhRMA.
Steven Elmendorf, Elmendorf Strategies: Medicines Company, PhRMA, United Health
Shannon Finley, Capitol Counsel: Amgen, Astra-Zeneca, Blue Cross, GE, PhRMA, Sanofi-Aventis.
Heather Podesta, Heather Podesta & Partners: Cigna, Eli Lilly, HealthSouth
Tony Podesta, Podesta Group: Amgen, GE, Merck,
Also in the crowd were folks representing Boston Scientific. Please note who made themselves available – John Ketchup Kerry and our Gang of Ten as sponsors. Bet they all got checks too! So what do we call this – “good government for sale – a glass of wine too”? Remember these folks have all made their sweetheart deals with the Obama White House months ago [no, C-Span wasn’t invited in], and now they were tossing Martha “chump change” to insure her victory, and cover their bet.
So now you see why Martha never went after those crooks on Beacon Hill. It would have been so hypocritical of her.
Mass Voters – Do NOT elect this woman! This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’ll still be known as Mass-a-two-shits!
