WASHINGTON, DC., Oct. 23. Billionaires for Wealthcare singers delivered a spontaneous, guerrilla musical, "Public Option Annie" at the final day of the AHIP conference for the private insurance industry, today.
AHIP's website explains, "America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) is the national association representing nearly 1,300 member companies providing health insurance coverage to more than 200 million Americans."
Covering the songsters, Rachel Maddow said, "We begin tonight with the single most unexpected turn of events yet in the fight over health reform. "
CBS News reported, "Insurance industry pollster Bill McInturff was giving a speech Friday when he was interrupted at first with cheers of praise from people who seemingly belonged at the conference, given their business attire. The cheers turned into a song about the 'public option,' or government-run health insurance, performed to the tune of 'Tomorrow' from the musical Annie."
