    Get away
    You get a good job with good pay and you're okay
    It's a gas
    Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
    New car, caviar, four star daydream
    Think I'll buy me a football team

    From the song "Money" by Pink Floyd

    It's no secret there is money in politics, it takes money to run for office

    However looking at campaign contributions can be enlightening, especially when you compare those contributions to votes

    For instance, I took a look at the campaign contributions of Senator Jim Marleau who introduced the MI Health Care Exchange (Obama Care) bill (killed in Committee BIG SHOUT OUT to all you went to Committee meetings, e-mailed and called :)

    I looked up a couple of these contributors and their agendas and found...

    Michigan Association of Community Mental Health Boards - (517) 374-6848
    MI 48933-0000 11/08/10 $500.00
    Ways to Move the CMH System Forward
    Facilitate greater use of electronic health records and electronic exchange of health information.This will improve accuracy,  timeliness, and coordination of physical and mental health care

    MI 48933-0000 11/15/10 $2,000.00

    From their Newsletter

    MI Health Marketplace

    Oh look Marleu's bill --->(SB 693)) Creates the MI-Health insurance exchange; would regulate individual health benefit plans Status: House Health Policy Committee MHA POSITION: SUPPORT

    Peace of Mind Registry

    Another Marleau bill---->(SB 723) Creates the Peace of Mind Registry for advance directive for health care. Status: Senate Floor MHA POSITION: SUPPORT
    This Bill SB 723 moves organ donor program solely from Secretary of State (SOS) to the Department of Community Health (DCH) with creation of a new electronic data gathering program. This bill is another step towards enabling of ObamaCare via the electronic data access and transmission of medical "directives" in the proposed MI Health Care Exchange

    Health Insurance

    A bill to provide that no person be required to obtain or maintain health insurance coverage.(Obama Care) ---->(HB 4050) Would prohibit mandate to obtain individual health insurance coverage. Status: House Health Policy MHA POSITION: OPPOSE

    And lets toss in gun control!

    Concealed Weapons

    (SB 58/HB 4009) Eliminates list of specified premises on which a person licensed to carry a concealed weapon may not carry. Status: Senate Judiciary Committee MHA POSITION: OPPOSE

    MI 48348-0000 11/15/10 $500.00
    We support candidates who understand roadway and driver safety, financial responsibility, consumer education, and the need for a healthy insurance marketplace in Michigan.

    And Health Care Unions - MICHIGAN NURSES ASSOCIATION $500.00

    Added up "Health" ranked 3rd for all total contributions

    Oh and toss in $1,000 from the "Turnaround PAC"(under "Ideology/Single Issue") the Turnaround PAC is from the "Michigan Turnaround Plan" organization of Democrat and moderate Republicans who endorsed Rick Snyder for Governor and also endorse the NITC/DRIC bridge and "revenue neutral" economics which is just another name for robbing Peter to pay Paul as opposed to actually limiting government and therefore limiting the revenue or taxes(your money) needed to run it.

    Another curiosity is that although Sen. Marleau introduced the bill SB 693, he never mentioned his "accomplishment" to his constituents in his year-end review Newsletter send on their dime. Link Here

    And of course you can't leave out the fact that the Governor who is from Marleau's Party wanted and still wants the Health Care Exchange and said so in his recent State of the State address

    "In addition, Snyder renewed his call for legislative approval of the MiHealth Marketplace program,..."

    But never fear Senator Marleau even though the next MI Senate elections are not until 2014 we won't forget your votes, or your campaign contributions and who knows even though you were re-districted favorably someone might just decide to move. Can you say Primary?!

    And you do not wait to 2014 to speak with Senator Marleau in person, you can mosey on over to the Greater Oakland Republican Club (GOGOP) meeting regarding SB 693 held on February 7, 2012 at 7pm at the Orion-Oxford Eagles Club, 317 West Clarkston Rd, Lake Orion, MI. MAP HERE The agenda calls for three speakers Bill Bullard, Sen. Marleau, and one yet to be named speaker
