Glenn Greenwald on Rachel Maddow explains why Senators Evan Bayh and Joe Lieberman are ready to destroy health care reform for their own personal gain.
Please note the system described by Greenwald where Senatorial families rake is large dollars by selling influence to the highest bidder is widespread. Essentially hubby gets into the Senate and then wifey sells her name and her husband's ear to large corporations for large $'s into their joint checking account. Its just a different way to market and profit from influence peddling. Certainly it is business as usual in both the Senate and the House. We in New Mexico don't have to look any farther than our own Senator Jeff Bingaman to see the same game being played.
