Insurance Executives Against ObamaCare
Billionaires for Wealthcare in San Mateo
On August 22, in San Mateo, "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!

The group calling themselves "Insurance Executives Against ObamaCare" stated that: "We're the wealthy health care insurance execs and pharmaceutical execs who are making a killing (pardon the pun) off of the status quo in the health care industry. We elite refer to it as Wealthcare. And since we Billionaires are a minority in this country, we desperately need your support so that we can continue our profiteering...so that one day it may trickle down to you lowly people. Thanks for your support! Huzzah!!"
