Stupid Carrier Tricks: MA Special Election Edition

There's a special election next week to replace the late Sen Ted "I'll Cross That Bridge When I Drive Off Of It" Kennedy. It's a hotly contested race, with a KennedyClan©-endorsed Martha Coakley vying against Republican challenger Scott Brown. Yesterday, Mr Brown raised over $1 million, primarily from private citizens all around the country.

By contrast, Ms Coakley has collected up to $10,000 each from "Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, HealthSouth, and United HealthCare."

That's tens of thousands of premium dollars going to someone guaranteed to vote for ObamaCare, at the direct expense of their policyholders' interests (and health). How is this "responsible stewardship?"
