AHIP Lobbies Republicans

America’s private insurance trade group is appealing to Republicans to block Obama’s healthcare reform plans and reassure its interests.

“There is absolutely no interest, no reason Republicans should ever vote for this thing [Obama’s healthcare reform]. They have gone from a party that got killed 11 months ago to a party that is rising today. And they are rising up on the turmoil of health care,” a top lobbyist for private insurance trade group America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) said, according to the Huffington Post. “So when they vote for a health care reform bill, whatever it is, they are giving comfort to the enemy who is down. Long before the Republicans discovered that the House bill was a strategy to kill seniors and all that kind of stuff the plan was already unpopular,” he added during the opening session of AHIP’s annual State Issues Conference.
