Yet Another Health Care Update: Pelosi Has a Target

The insurance industry had about 2.3 million wage and salary jobs in 2006. Insurance carriers accounted for 62 percent of jobs, while insurance agencies, brokerages, and providers of other insurance-related services accounted for 38 percent of jobs. -- Bureau of Labor Statistics

Quoth Nancy Pelosi (POLITICO):
“Of course, they’ve been immoral all along,” she added. “They are the villains in this. They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening, and the public has to know. They have had a good thing going for a long time at the expense of the American people and the health of our country.”
If given the chance, she would eliminate all 2.3 million jobs in the insurance industry.

Some of these folks make a little over $11/hour. These are the people Pelosi claims are the problem. Is it immoral to have a job, Madame Speaker?

Don't be fooled...

UPDATE: Of course... Speaker Will Keep 'Villains' Money ...I am shocked -- SHOCKED -- to find gambling in this establishment...
