House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s mouth issued the following during an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer.

Well, you know, some people will do anything for the insurance companies,”

Pelosi said of Boehner in an echo of the bitter fight over the health care bill.”

Apparently her brain did not engage or she might have remembered this strange little fact from OpenSecrets.org:

The largest Industry contribution to Madame Speakers campaign in the 2009 – 2010 cycle came from the “Health” sector with  “Finance, Insurance and Real Estate” arriving a not so distant second.

Why not just return the donations raised by the evil “Lobbyist” from United Health Care last fall as the moral thing to do with the Health Care Bill before her?

Just as Speaker Nancy Pelosi begins to back away from the public option, the insurance industry holds a fundraiser for her. See David Sirota’s column republished at http://www.prosperityagenda.us/node/1775. Steve Elmendorf, a registered lobbyist for United Health, sent invitations to a Pelosi fundraiser at his home for this Thursday. The asking price: $5,000 for PACs and $2,400 per individual – the legal maximum for each.

Wonder where the Public Option went? I suppose “some people” will, well you know, do anything for the insurance companies.
