Lobby in good hands with Ross

Posted By on Sat, Mar 13, 2010 at 6:36 AM

Another note from Paul Barton in Washington this morning:

Rep. Mike Ross earlier this month received a citation from the Independent Insurance Agents of America, “the Big ‘I’.” Ross, who has doggedly opposed the Obama administration on health care reform, received the award at the group’s legislative convention in Washington. He was also the keynote speaker.

In an official press release, the group said Ross has represented the interests of independent insurance agents well in the health care debate. “Rep. Ross is a true Blue Dog Democrat who practices what he preaches,” Robert A. Rusbuldt, president of the association, said in a statement. “Mike is us.”

The Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan campaign research organization, lists insurance as among the top five industries donating to Ross for his 2010 re-election.
