Action: Billionaires for Wealthcare in San Mateo
by Cuz Corporations Know What's Best for You!
Sunday Aug 23rd, 2009 12:38 AM
Billionaires are a small minority in America, so they stand together against Health Care Reform. They bring two important things together in their fight against the poor and the middle class--an abundance of money and an utter lack of ethical convictions.

In San Mateo, California on August 22nd "Billionaire" activists stood at a busy intersection in front of a branch of Ameritrade and spread their message: Private Health Care--Because Corporations Know What's Best for You!

Members of San Mateo Peace Action and friends donned some hifalutin apparel for this shtick. Visit the website below to learn how you too can be a billionaire for a day.

Holding posters is what butlers are for. They should really be resting on director's chairs and sipping beverages while their butlers hold the posters for them and hold parasols over their masters.
