Senate Moderates Moderately in the Hole to the Insurance Industry

Max Baucus, Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman, Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe.
Names synonomous in the MSM with sensibly centrist moderation.
Senators whose opinions on health care insurance reform we should all carefully listen to.
And senators who are in the hole to some of the richest, highest paid insurance CEOs in the country world.

Ronald Williams is CEO of Aetna. Last year, he had a pay package worth $17.4 million .
In the 2006 and 2008 election cycles, he contributed $4,100 to Joe Lieberman, $2,000 (or $4,000 – there may be a duplication) to Ben Nelson, $1,000 to Susan Collins and $1,000 to Olympia Snowe.

Angela Braly, CEO of WellPoint, had a pay package worth $9.8 million .
She contributed $2,000 to Chuck Grassley, $2,300 to the ever-mavericky John McCain,
and threw in another $10,000 to the NRSC.

Michael McCallister, CEO of Humana, had a pay package worth $5.2 million .
He contributed $2,000 to Max Baucus, $2,000 to Mark Warner, $1,500 to Orrin Hatch,
and what appear to be a large number of small contributions to Humana’s PAC.

What will we tell the children?
