Health Care Visitors Not Big Obama Donors


In case anyone was wondering, the health care lobbyists and executives listed as having visited the White House to discuss health care reform are not big donors to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Of the fourteen visitors, only one, Jay Gellert, CEO of Health Net, contributed money to the President’s 2008 campaign. Gellert contributed a small amount, $500, in 2008. The only other notable contribution from visitors to the White House include Wellpoint CEO Angela Braly’s $2,300 contribution to Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign.
