Billionaires for Wealthcare visited Senator Klobuchar’s Minneapolis office Friday to present the Senator with a million dollar check in appreciation of her refusal to take a position on the Public Option. Billionaires around the country are optimistic that spending $5,000,000 weekly on Congress is successfully defeating meaningful healthcare reform.
Unfortunately, Klobuchar’s staff was reluctant to be publicly videotaped accepting the million dollar contribution. Her Director of Constituent Services, Kali Cruz, repeatedly requested the Billionaires to come into a private room without a camera so that the privacy of people filling out job applications would not be violated.
Senator Klobuchar has courageously refused to listen to the two thirds of the American people who back a Public Option, a Medicare for all proposal in the healthcare reform legislation. The Billionaires applaud her leadership in not releasing a position statement on the Public Option. There is a lot of constituent pressure to support a Public Option, but Klobuchar is wisely taking into consideration the millions in campaign contributions made by the Billionaires and the healthcare industry.
Billionaire representatives Mrs. I. M. Rich and Mrs. Dee Regulation gushed over the fabulous lifestyles they enjoy as wives of healthcare industry executives. They each have multiple homes, private jets, and yachts – courtesy of an industry that makes enormous profits from denying people medical care.
They bemoan any reform legislation that would limit health insurance profits. Mrs. Rich was ecstatic about the potential for profits if everyone is required to have health insurance and there are government subsidies. However, the Billionaires agreed that passage of a Public Option could have disastrous effects on the billions in profits enjoyed by the health insurance corporations.
Mrs. Regulation expressed her admiration that Senator Klobuchar is doing corporate work without the salary and stock options enjoyed by corporation executives. “I have so much admiration for Amy’s willingness to help our corporations while living on the meager salary of a Senator. She has been simply marvelous in her support of corporate America. “
Billionaires for Wealthcare expressed the hope that they will be able to deliver another million dollar campaign contribution to Senator Klobuchar again later in the fall, when the Public Option and meaningful healthcare reform are successfully defeated.
