California Nurses Ask What You Could Do With $150,000

The California Nurses Association is asking what you could do with the $150,000 the Republican National Committee recently spent on Gov. Sarah Palin’s wardrobe and makeup. “Spending $150,000 for a one month wardrobe while painting yourself as a ‘hockey mom’ or the voice of ‘Joe Six Pack’ is an insult,” said CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.

The CNA/NNOC points out that the $22,800 the RNC spent on Palin’s makeup would pay for 224 mammograms, or 651 flu shots or would provide nearly 14 years worth of Lipitor for one person to lower his/her cholesterol.

To illustrate their point, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC)has set up a website, DressLikePalin.com, to show how $150,000 could have been better spent, “at a time when Americans are struggling to pay their medial bills or keep their homes,” according to Geri Jenkins, co-President of CNA/NNOC.
