Tin Ear Bonanza Dept: The "widely respected for our expertise" lobbying group Strategic Health Care is hosting a "White Trash Reception on the Hill" next week so all those highly-paid, fully-insured lobbyists and health care honchos can party with Congressional staffers and tell funny stories about those poor yahoos who can't afford the meds and services they peddle. It's good timing 'cause they re-enforce the message earlier this week in a House debate when Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) said insurance companies shouldn't have to pay "millions and millions" in health coverage for people just because they have brain tumors. Sigh. One grows discouraged.
"Hey y'all - get gussied up in your Sunday jorts, mullets, and fullets and come on down to the White Trash Reception."
