The End Game In Residstribution Politics

Evan Bayh pretty much gives away the game.  We rob from the unpopular and give to the popular.

You can sort of see this coming. The savings from the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance industry, you can kind of count on that because they're not very popular.

The hospitals are a different story.  People, you know, like their hospitals; they tend to trust their hospitals. The hospitals have pledged big savings. I can easily forecast at some point in the not-too-distant future the hospitals coming in and saying, "You know what, this isn't working exactly the way we expected. Please spare us from this," and them getting a good hearing in [Congress].

  • This should probably be amended to be: “We rob from the unpopular, render them legally defenseless (or threaten to), and give to the trial lawyers and unions.”
