Tomorrow, the Senate will vote to open debate on its version of Obamacare, so it’s worth reviewing the huge amount of taxpayer funded bribery that has enabled this farce to continue.
The American Medical Association, as I discuss here, will receive a bribe exceeding $200 billion. Not a bad take for a group that represents less than 17% of practicing physicians.
The AARP, which has already received a huge bribe in the “stimulus” bill, will also reap a huge crop of new customers when the Dems kick 10 million seniors off Medicare Advantage.
The SEIU, as I predicted a year ago, gets unprecedented influence over the formulation of national health policy, which it will use to unionize the health care industry.
And let’s not forget the people who will actually vote tomorrow. As Michelle Malkin reports in her own list of Demcare bribes, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu gets a cool $100 million.
These pay-offs are, of course, just the tip pf the iceberg. Who knows what as-yet-undiscovered skulduggery has been going on behind closed doors in the pursuit of health “reform.”
