MSNBC’s Shuster calls out Sen. Carper

Reporter links political contributions to block of public option

Kudos to MSNBC’s David Shuster for calling out Sen. Thomas Carper (D-DE)  on-air.

Shuster, leading into an interview with Carper, pointed out that health industry lobbyists are spending $1.4 million a day trying to block a public option for health insurance.

During the interview, he pointed out the $223,000 the insurance industry and the additional $122,000 from the pharmaceutical companies that have flowed into Carper’s campaign coffers for his 2010 re-election.


If Carper is your Senator, call him at one of these numbers and tell him to support a REAL public option, not the phoney co-op plans that have no teeth.
