On Thursday the 9/12ers were whipped up into an undifferentiated rage against most everything that is not Michele Bachmann or Fox News. The protest was brought to DC on an AstroTurf wave of Billionaire Koch dollars.
The Billionaires for Wealthcare thought it would be a great idea to sing their praises for a job well done on protecting the status quo.
The Billionaires singled out particular representatives at the event for their service:
* Rep. Michele Bachmann (R – MN) – who has taken $200,000 in campaign donations from health care interests
* Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) – who has taken $2.4 million
* Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) – $1.3 million
* Rep. Scott Garret (R-NJ) – $240,000

At the 1:00 minute mark you can see some glad-handing with Randall Terry.
And a peek behind the curtain, what does the glamorous life of a Billionaire for Wealthcare really look like?
My favorite is the woman at the end who keeps yelling, “get a job!”
