Nope … not tea party folks … it’s organized labor. Hmmmmm, who are the wild eyed extremist mobs? From Connecticut News Junkie:
Carrying pitchforks and torches a group of labor unions and health care groups marched down Church Street in Hartford Tuesday night to let the state’s largest business lobby know that they want health care reform.
John Murphy of the Connecticut Citizens Action Group said the Connecticut Business and Industry Association symbolizes what the group is up against in its fight for quality, affordable health care.
CBIA makes most of its revenue from selling insurance to small businesses, Murphy said. He said it is blocking reform efforts because under a government run system health care system it would lose money.
Actually I understand it’s just street theater, but imagine if it were tea party folks. Oh the humanity.
One other thing to note: The CBIA provides low cost group health insurance to small business (like mine), without whom small business likely couldn’t find affordable health care. Just saying is all.
