Dems hit Pawlenty for paid speech on healthcare

Democrats went after Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty on Thursday for giving a paid speech on healthcare reform.

Pawlenty will address insurance executives as the annual convention of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) in San Francisco. Democrats accused the former Minnesota governor of "being bought and paid for by the health insurance executives" and bashed his desire to repeal President Obama's healthcare reform law.
