We already brought you the "Billionaires for Wealthcare" wonderful counter-protests to the crazy tea baggers out there. Tonight Rachel Maddow featured them on her show. Good for her.

From their group:

The latest incarnation of the "Billionaire" meme, "Billionaires forWealthcare" struck againthis weekend, as Healthcare Inc. CEOs in tuxedos and gowns "thanked"Tea-baggers for coming out for Glenn Beck's March on Washington thispast Saturday.

Tea-baggers eagerly joined in on Billionaire chants of "Bring BackBush!" and “Fight Socialism! Abolish Medicare Now!”, but the greatestcrowd pleaser (and provoker) of the day, was a stirring rendition oftheir original song "Let's Save the Status Quo" sung to the tune ofthe "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and memorably captured in this music video.

Can you help us out?
