Big Pharma for Coakley? Follow the special interest money

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

The establishment including that syncophant known as Big Pharma (big boosters of ObamaCare, once it cut their deal) is pulling out the stops for Martha. According to The Examiner, the health industrial complex (Massachusetts division) is holding a fundraiser for Coakley in the Beltway.

With Democrat Martha Coakley in trouble in the Massachusetts special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat, Democrats could lose vote No. 60 for President Obama’s health-care bill. In response, an army of lobbyists for drug companies, health insurance companies, and hospitals has teamed up to throw a high-dollar Capitol Hill fundraiser for Coakley next Tuesday night…

Of the 22 names on the host committee–meaning they raised $10,000 or more for Coakley–17 are federally registered lobbyists, 15 of whom have health-care clients. Of the other five hosts, one is married to a lobbyist, one was a lobbyist in Pennsylvania, another is a lawyer at a lobbying firm, and another is a corporate CEO. Oh, and of course, there’s also the political action commitee for Boston Scientific Corporation.

The next time you hear that the GOP is captured by corporate interests like the drug companies or whomever, let out a big horse laugh particularly if it’s a Democrat supporting Coakley, the nascent insider.

Rob is there anyway to put a copy of the invitation here at RMG?
