I dont see any difference between protecting his contributors interests and what he did with his outburst.
So YES he was paid to say "YOU LIE"
This man received more moneys from Health Care industry rich fat cats then ANY other industry in his lifetime AND in the most recent time period.
If he received NO moneys from these people... I Guarantee he would NEVER have made such a statement.
Money comes in.... "You Lie" comes out.
