A Dose Of Their Own Medicine

Kirk Adams and his surrogates have been out in full force in a desperate, Hail Mary attempt to tie Congressional Candidate, Matt Salmon, to ObamaCare.  The statements from the Adams camp are intended to mislead and distract from Adams' obvious lack of experience or credibility.  They know that if they put his opponent's name in the same sentence as "ObamaCare!" that it will send shivers down the spines of the oblivious electorate.  That's because they know the oblivious electorate won't take the time to check the facts that they have just been deceivingly fed.

However, it appears that the facts HAVE been shown to prove that Matt Salmon did NOT lobby to EXPAND ObamaCare.  Neither did the company for which he was employed.  You can read the facts here.

On the other hand, Kirk Adams received a $1000 donation to his Congressional campaign from the second largest pharmaceutical company in the world by revenue, GlaxoSmithKline.  GSK was also a top spender on lobbyists to influence healthcare reform.  In fact, in 2009, GSK's lobbying spending was the highest on record for the company.  A healthy $8.76 million dollars.

Also, Adams donated to the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers PAC in December 2008 and again in September of 2009.  The INSURP PAC donated to ObamaCare supporters like Barney Frank, Kirsten Gillibrand, Luis Guttierez, Steny Hoyer, Chuck Schumer and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

Tough pill to swallow?
