Did The Insurance Industry Buy Off Your Senator?

People Over Profits just issued a press release detailing how Senators voted on the medical malpractice bills that were recently defeated in the Senate.  If you're not a member of People Over Profits yet, go join.

Here's the voting breakdown.  Note that only three Republicans had the courage to put the interests of their constituents ahead of the campaign contributions from the insurance industry.  For your convenience, I highlighted them.  If you live in their districts, it would be especially nice for you to drop them an email or call them to thank them for voting for your rights.

And if you live in Senator Rick Santorum's district, why not email or call him to tell him what a worthless hypocrite he is, and demand that he return the $500,000 he and his wife received in noneconomic damages from a lawsuit against a chiropractor who injured his wife so severely she had a hard time losing weight from her pregnancy?  And I thought Rick was opposed to obesity lawsuits!  But it's always different when you (or your wife) is the plaintiff....
