The Asshole Joe Lieberman
… Is preparing for his Filibuster assault on Health Care Reform. What can be said about this Healthcare Lobbyist Whore… He’s a backstabbing traitor and is showing his TRUE colors…
Asshole Healthcare Lobbist Whore Joe Lieberman
Would ANYONE like to guess what Whore Joe’s REAL Agenda is and why he wants to Filibuster against Health care Reform? It is very clear that Joe the Backstabber, LIAR Lieberman and his family has huge ties to Health care organizations and there are more Health care corporate headquarters in Connecticut than any other state in this country!
- Connecticut has the highest U.S. concentration of insurance jobs, with the industry accounting for about 64,000 jobs as of June 2009, according to the state’s labor department. That’s down 23 percent from the 83,000 jobs in 1990, although the state projects a slow growth of 4 percent through 2014.
- The state is home to 72 insurance headquarters, with three times the U.S. average of insurance jobs as a percent of total state employment. The state’s unemployment rate currently stands at 8.6 percent.
- Joe, Joe, Joe… Three times the US Average for Health Insurance Headquarters in your State… No Wonder you want to Filibuster… You’re DOG Meat Pal!!!
So… What else can we find about this Asshole and his hidden agenda? Let’s ask his wife shall we?
It’s bad enough that the traitor Lieberman and his buddy from Indiana Senator Evan Bayh are paid whores of the Health Insurance and Pharmaceutical lobbyists, but it appears both of their wives have a deep hand in the pockets of Health Insurance and Pharmaceutical companies. So much so they are playing pocket pool with the top executives in these organizations.
The Lieberman family’s financial ties to the health industry are no secret, yet their full extent remains unknown. During her husband’s 2006 reelection campaign, Hadassah Lieberman’s employment as a “senior counselor” to Hill & Knowlton, one of the world’s biggest lobbying firms, briefly erupted as an issue, especially because the clients she served were in the controversial pharmaceutical and insurance sectors. Exactly what she did for those clients has never been disclosed.
At the time she joined the public relations and lobbying conglomerate in the spring of 2005, she expressed the touching hope that she would somehow be able to help those in need. “I have had a lifelong commitment to helping people gain better healthcare,” she said in a press release. “I am excited about the opportunity to work with the talented team at Hill & Knowlton to counsel a terrific stable of clients toward that same goal.” Less than a year later, having pocketed $77,000 in salary, she quit without explanation — just as her husband was facing a tough primary that he would eventually lose. Throughout the campaign, Hadassah Lieberman, her husband and their spokespersons explicitly refused to discuss her professional activities, except to note that she had not been required to register as a lobbyist.
Hmmmmmmmm They REFUSED to discuss Mrs. Lieberman’s “professional activities…” This Surprises WHO?
But her (Hadassah Lieberman’s) stint at Hill & Knowlton was merely one episode in a professional lifetime devoted to the corporate health sector. For most of the past three decades, Hadassah Lieberman has been employed by either pharmaceutical companies or the lobbying firms that represent them — starting with nearly a decade in the “public affairs department” at Hoffman-LaRoche from 1972-81, followed by stints at Pfizer, where she spent four years as “director of policy, planning and communications,” and APCO Associates, a major lobbying firm where she served as a “senior associate” in its large healthcare division before retiring in 1998.
She went back to work when she joined H&K, an outfit that became notorious for its billion-dollar defense of the tobacco industry. Not long after her contract began, Sen. Lieberman introduced legislation vastly extending patent protection for pharmaceutical companies — notably including GlaxoSmithKline, a top client of his wife’s firm.
Just when you thought the Lieberman family was so corrupt with their pocket filling agenda’s it seems the Bayh family continues to collect enormous amounts of money from the same health insurance and drug companies that will benefit from her husband’s actions. Indeed, the smell of ethical rot arising from the Bayh household is even worse than the self-serving aroma that surrounds the Liebermans.
Susan Bayh was invited to join the board of Wellpoint back in 1998, when the Indiana-based company was still called Anthem Insurance and had not yet completed the mergers that made it the largest health insurer in America (and gave it monopoly status in many regions of the country). According to her official biography on Wellpoint’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, her qualifications to sit on the board of a billion-dollar corporation were minimal, to put it politely. She was 38 years old, teaching law at a local university, with limited experience as a corporate attorney at Eli Lilly & Co., the big pharmaceutical company that is also headquartered in Indiana. But then her husband, Evan, after two terms as governor, had just been elected to the United States Senate.
Susan Bayh’s compensation from Wellpoint, including the stock options that she has exercised repeatedly over the past 10 years, has reached an estimated $2 million, including last year’s director salary of over $300,000. She is the only director who, according to the most recent SEC filing, actually owns no shares in the company, because she sells as soon as her options become available. In January 2007, she exercised her options to acquire 3,333 shares of Wellpoint for an estimated cost of $147,000 — and sold them the same day for an estimated price of $260,000, netting a tidy sum of $113,000. She repeated the same process five months later for a net profit of $136,000, and then seven months after that, selling another 1,430 shares for $123,000. That represented profits of nearly $400,000 on top of her salary.
Dear Citizens of the USA… These Two ASSHOLES and their Wives are WHORES for the Health Insurance and Pharmaceutical companies in more ways than one. Is it any wonder why these two TRAITORS are fighting Health Care Reform with such fervor? Maybe it’s time for the Population of this country to send a clear message to these two fucking assholes and to the worthless states they are representing. If the people of these two states feel they have good representation then maybe it’s time to lose two states from the USA and force them to be independent countries and go it alone… Maybe then, a representative will be voted in who will care about the people they represent versus the lobby money that continually pours into their pockets.
Wake Up Connecticut and Indiana… You’re being Screwed and the Pricks you elected are screwing this country for personal financial gain for them and their wives!
Take Positive Action against this worthless piece of trash who’s time has come… Let us ALL send this Greedy Lobbyist Lover packing!
