Congressman John Hall's fundraiser at Cat Rock in Garrison, New York was an occasion for him to vent on the disgraceful conduct of large insurance companies, particularly Prudential. Prudential is cheating the families of deceased Veterans by keeping 3/4 of the interest earnings on veterans' death benefits from the families. In addition, insurance companies are giving millions in donations to PACs, some to defeat John Hall, since they realize Hall plans to hold Congressional hearings on this conduct after the election. Mr. Hall has already been endorsed by the VFW's Political Action Committee. Please write to Prudential's chairman, John Strangfeld, about this revolting business practice.
Hall then told a charming story about meeting Bob Marley back in the day and how Marley marveled at how fast he played guitar (with Orleans) while Hall marveled at how slow Marley played. Hall then serenaded the crowd with the Marley classic "The Harder They Come, The Harder They Fall".
