Michelle Malkin » Big Biz/Big Guv luv: Look who’s coming to Martha Coakley’s aid now

Just remember who votes, Mass.  Not the Pharma companies, not the lobbyists.  They don’t vote, and they aren’t going to be paying your taxes.  You are.

Well, well, well. The Big Pharma lobbyists and health care special interests are digging deep into their pockets to help out flailing Mass. Democrat Senate candidate Martha Coakley.

The Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney, author of the investigative tour de force Obamanomics, has the scoop on the corporate socialist soiree in D.C.:

With Democrat Martha Coakley in trouble in the Massachusetts special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat, Democrats could lose vote No. 60 for President Obama’s health-care bill. In response, an army of lobbyists for drug companies, health insurance companies, and hospitals has teamed up to throw a high-dollar Capitol Hill fundraiser for Coakley next Tuesday night. The invitation is at right (click here for a better view).

Of the 22 names on the host committee–meaning they raised $10,000 or more for Coakley–17 are federally registered lobbyists, 15 of whom have health-care clients. Of the other five hosts, one is married to a lobbyist, one was a lobbyist in Pennsylvania, another is a lawyer at a lobbying firm, and another is a corporate CEO. Oh, and of course, there’s also the political action commitee for Boston Scientific Corporation.
