When you can’t stand the heat, surround yourselves with Purple Shirts.

The latest congressional fugitive to take sanctuary at a union office is Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Chaka Fattah. Via PA Water Cooler and Panzramic:


Rep. Fattah Will Address Healthcare Forum

PHILADELPHIA — Congressman Chaka Fattah, a strong advocate for President Obama’s Healthcare Reform plan with a robust public insurance option, will address a healthcare forum tomorrow. Fattah last week called for a national March for Healthcare in Washington in September.


WHO: Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA)

WHAT: Alliance for Retired Americans Healthcare Forum

WHEN: Tuesday August 25, 2009 at 11 a.m.

WHERE: SEIU Local 1202 headquarters

455 N. 5th Street

Philadelphia PA

In related news, SEIU is crowing about radical president Andy Stern’s listing among the “Top Ten Most Powerful People in Healthcare”:

SEIU President Andy Stern has been named in the top ten of Modern Healthcare’s ranking of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare, announced today in the publication’s August 24 edition.

It’s an honor to make Modern Healthcare’s listing of the ‘Top 100’ most influential “movers and shakers in healthcare”–and this year marks the fifth year in a row Stern has been named in the annual rankings. Stern is referred to as one of “the chief architects of healthcare reform,” alongside other top contenders President Barack Obama, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Sen. Baucus (D-Mont.) and OMB director of the White House Office Peter Orszag.

That’s what $61 million in union dues and the “persuasion of power” buys you.
