Posted on 01/17/2014 5:35:59 AM PST by cotton1706
As I mentioned yesterday, Ben Sasse of Nebraska is running for the Senate against a guy who has Mitch McConnells backing. Some of McConnells friends are holding a fundraiser for Sasses opponent at the NRSC. One name stands out pretty significantly on the invitation: Billy Piper.
Mr. Piper is not just Mitch McConnells former Chief of Staff. Hes now a well paid lobbyist working on behalf of companies implementing Obamacare. The Lexington Herald-Leader had a report on this just a couple of months ago.
Senator Mitch McConnell has received $75,000.00 from UnitedHealth Group. UnitedHealth owns the company that built Healthcare.gov. It also retains former McConnell chief of staff Billy Piper as a Washington lobbyist to work on its behalf in Congress on implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Senate records show.
Thats not the only Obamacare related client retaining Billy Piper. The Lexington Herald-Leader reports
Senate records show that Piper has several other clients who pay him for his assistance in implementing the Affordable Care Act, including the Federation of American Hospitals. The FAH has praised the health care law for making life easier for patients. The groups political action committee has given a total of $15,000 since 2011 to McConnells campaign and to his Bluegrass Committee.
While Billy Piper is sending contributions to Mitch McConnell from entities profiting from Obamacare, McConnells current Chief of Staff, Josh Holmes, is working out of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, where Ben Sasses opponent is holding a fundraiser with Billy Piper on the host committee.

Just connect the dots. The Chamber of Commerce says it is going to work to fix, not repeal, Obamacare. A top policy wonk who has Mitch McConnells ear is starting a think tank to fix, not repeal, Obamacare. The Chamber of Commerce is going to attack conservatives in Republican Primaries. The Republican Main Street Partnership is getting Democrat money to join them. McConnell sends his current Chief to the NRSC, which in turn black balls a political shop helping conservatives. The NRCC joins in the black balling.
The Chamber of Commerce stated that a one-party Dem administration is better for the country. If it is supporting a Rep, the Rep is a RINO.
G-d damn you to hell Mitch McConnell.
Who is Sasse’s Primary opponent that the GOPe is supporting?
Heard Sasse interviewed on Mark Levin last night.
He sounded great and he received Levin’s support.
Great post, cotton1706. McConnell’s a real sleazeball.
We can metaphorically thumb are noses @ McConnell and give him the Italian Salute with our dollars...
