Large corporations own and run Congress. The American people get shit
Today, the House of Representatives debated the Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act, legislation that would repeal the 65 year exemption health insurance companies have from anti-trust regulations.
Speaking on the House floor this afternoon, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) lambasted Republicans for being “a wholly owned subsidiary of an insurance industry,” prompting an offended Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) to lodge a complaint.
"We all know that the thousands of corporate lobbyists own congress. But it's our little secret. We don't want the American people to find out that we take care of our big political doners, the large corporations, first. If there's anything left, we'll throw Americans a bone. If you don't like it, eat cake!"
