Boehner To Give Keynote Address At Insurance Industry Conference’s ‘Lobbying Day’
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will give the keynote address at the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) conference in Washington, “hours before” association members “fan out across Capital Hill to lobby their congress members.” The April 14th conference is expected to attract at least 1,000 attendees, who converge on the Capitol every year for “lobbying day.”

IIABA Senior Vice President Charles Symington called Boehner “a longtime friend,” and said, “The Speaker’s focused commitment to removing government barriers in order to create more jobs and economic growth go hand-in-hand with many of the goals.” ...

~snip~

The IIABA has been a staunch opponent of President Obama’s health reform law, and supports House Republicans’ misguided attempt to repeal it. The group’s PAC spent nearly $2 million in the 2010 election cycle alone, including a $10,000 donation to Boehner.
