Senators Who Oppose Public Health Care Option Received Millions in Campaign Contributions

The Public Campaign Action Fund issued a press release on Monday showing that the nine Senators who sent a letter to Pres. Obama opposing a public option for health care have received over $17 million in campaign contributions from the health care and insurance industries.

 

“Americans want a government that is responsive to our needs, not a Congress that listens to its donors from the insurance and health care industry,” commented David Donnelly, national campaigns director of Public Campaign Action Fund. “These Senators appear to be carrying water for their donors at the expense of advancing health care reform.”
