Must See Video: Bill Moyers Exposes Max Baucus’ Advisers And Other Lobbyists

max-baucus In yet another insightful segment, PBS’s Bill Moyers shows who is coming in and out of the “revolving door” — the lobbyists that come to Washington to lobby, and the lobbyists that go to Washington to work for no one else, but their former employers. Take a look at what Moyers is about to show you: Max Baucus’ real advisers.

Where is the Senate’s Judiciary Committee when you need it? This would be a clear case of ethics violations.

    the saddest part of this story is that it is all legal.

    The publisher of this website should take more of a responsibility for the advertising on the site. When I clicked this link from reddit.com there was an ad opposing a public option for health care right next to the video of Mr. Moyers . The ad says HANDS OFF MY HEALTHCARE. And STOP GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE. The ad is “paid for by Patients First a project of Americans for Prosperity.” Who runs that? Also the ad is placed on the page twice.
    here is a link for a screen cap of the page http://imgur.com/Dx2vQl.jpg

      We have no control over the advertisement content on the site, Google does. Trust me, we do not care for the ad you mentioned either. Hopefully, we will be able to secure advertisement that we can control, independently from Google, in the near future. We are working on it.

        You can blacklist certain ads with Adsense. Login to Adsense, then go to Adsense Setup > Competitive Ad Filter for more info on how to do this.

    We are hostages of the health care industry, paying the tab, no one to rescue us. If we were wall street we would get a bail out no questions asked. Obama is not going to help us get the Public Option, no change we can count on.

      And who is responsible for making sure that any reasonable public option got torpedoed? It wasn’t the Democrats, who wanted it, but removed it. It was the GOP, who made damned sure that any meaningful options got pulled from any bill by running astroturf campaigns to scare the crap out of the uninformed. And it worked. But make sure you know who you’re blaming for this mess, and pick the correct target.
