I think Carter had a point. Race is playing a role in the money that Wilson is raising. It's blacklash. Wilson is a neo-confederate.

You could also say that the money his future opponent is raising is race based.
Carter should take his own advise to Wilson and shut up. He ignores decorum by constantly criticizing the Presidents that followed him. Other presidents have refrained from that nasty practice, but Carter can't keep his mouth shut. It almost as if he is trying to make people forget that he was one of the worst presidents in history.
Wilson is a major recipient of contributions from the health care industry.
In fact, over his entire congressional career, health professionals represent Wilsonís top industry contributors, donating a total of $244,196 to his campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics OpenSecrets.org database. He received another $86,150 from pharmaceutical companies, $73,050 from insurance companies and $68,000 from hospitals and nursing homes.
Among Wilsonís top contributors are the American Hospital Association, a lobby group that represents the interests of hospitals and health networks, and the American Medical Association, which represents physicians. Raw Story Obama speech disrupter a health industry darling
IMO,...what we have been seeing all summer is the HC industry fighting desperately to maintain it's choke hold on the American people & protect their obscene profits.
Now.....add to that recipe :a good helping of right wing...anti Democrat sentiment, anger at losing power in this country, Evangelical dogma & add a touch of ...good old racism &...what do you have??.......The hysterical town hall meetings, the Tea parties & an insurance company undercover agent/ U.S. Congressman yelling at the POTUS ............& all this have been bought & paid for through our insurance company premiums!
That's what this fight is really all about.......Simple Greed!..& racism is merely one of the arrows in their quiver.
(the really sad part about this is that many honest people in this country are being used as unwitting dupes by the HC industry to actually work against their own interests by protecting the profits of the very corporations who are ripping them off through the high premiums they charge!)
