Link from the right: http://campaignspot....jJmYjcyMmIwNGQ=

And the left: http://campaignsilo....or-support-ads/

But both pointing to the same thing: The White House and probably Congress apparently struck a deal with PhRMA to offer favorable legislation in exchange for millions of dollars in ads supporting what's come to be known as "ObamaCare".

Can heads PLEASE roll this time?

All heads.

Every last f*ck*ng one.

Where've you been? I've been ranting about this for a month.

It's one reason the "oh noes, Obama's a socialist!" cries of alarm are so silly.
"Facts are stupid things." -Ronald Reagan at the 1988 Republican National Convention, attempting to quote John Adams, who said, "Facts are stubborn things"

"Although health care enrollment is actually going pretty well at this point, thousands and maybe millions of Americans have failed to sign up for coverage because they believe the false horror stories they keep hearing." -- Paul Krugman

He's not a gorram socialist - he's a bought and paid for thug, pure and simple, but the right is afraid to call him that, and the left is so outraged by the right they aren't looking ( mostly ) at what he really is.

Yeah, Spectacles and many others on the left side of health care reform have been all over this for some time. While the talk radio crowd has been whipping up hysteria about Obama's impending Marxist Revolution, Obama has been cutting backroom deals with big business and ultimately siding with the Blue Dogs against the Progressive Caucus on virtually every issue that threatens Wall Street's concentration of power. This Sen. Tom Carper is one such Blue Dog, formerly a chief supporter of the Debt Slavery--I mean, Bankruptcy Act, on behalf of the credit card monopoly that controls his state of Delaware.

In fairness to Obama, he's still better than the Blue Dogs but thus far he's chosen the path of least resistance and dealt with them and their corporate benefactors in return for some concessions, like this closing of the donut hole that was brought to us by the Republicans.
