This Year’s Most Creative Protest

I thoroughly enjoyed this:

At the annual conference of America's Health Insurance Plans -- the lobbying group that released that threatening report about how inclusion of a public option in health-care legislation would cause private insurers to astronomically jack up their rates -- conferees were entertained by the guerrilla troop, Billionaires for Wealthcare, and their special rendition of "Tomorrow."...

What else is there for me to say?

I nearly died laughing when I saw that on TV. Can't remember which channel (obviously, not Faux Noise), but it was something newsy.

I applaud the spoofers. I like how they were led out by security. It's a wonder some right-winger didn't pull out his sidearm and starting blasting away.

I love the various Billionaires street theater groups.

Marva, so did I. That's why I found the video and posted it.

Libhom, this is the first I've heard of them, but I can't wait for more.

Yeah! Trophy Wife and I replayed this three times when we saw it on Rachel's show! A classic!

Thanks, Vig. TW sounds like a classic herself.
