Day one of Armageddon. What does Obama have planned for this bleak, dark day?
Let’s visit his schedule:
11:00 am || Receives the Presidential Daily Briefing
Noon || Meets with beneficiaries of Obamacare
The beneficiaries of Obamacare? Oh, he must mean pole like Elizabeth Folwer, the lobbyist for big Pharm, who took a job helping the dems craft Obamacare, and is now (revolving door style – which Obama said he was going to put an end to) leaving Washington to cash-in.
The pharmaceutical giant that just hired Fowler actively supported the passage of Obamacare through its membership in the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) lobby. Indeed, PhRMA was one of the most aggressive supporters – and most lavish beneficiaries – of the health care bill drafted by Fowler. Mother Jones’ James Ridgeway proclaimed “Big Pharma” the “big winner” in the health care bill. And now, Fowler will receive ample rewards from that same industry as she peddles her influence in government and exploits her experience with its inner workings to work on that industry’s behalf, all of which has been made perfectly legal by the same insular, Versailles-like Washington culture that so lavishly benefits from all of this.
These folks won’t be there; those who’ve had their jobs cut, or hours slashed, as businesses try to adjust for the new costs associated with Obamacare.
I don’t know who else could be benefiting.
