Many of my left-thinking friends hate corporations. They don't trust corporations. They think corporations are the root of evil. They think that corporations represent everything wrong with government and society. My only question is: "why is your philosopher-king so pro corporation?"
Obama hates AIG, but just how does he feel about GE Capital? You know, the financial subsidiary of GE that was able to sway Obama on his financial sector reform. You know, the company that makes health care equipment. Oh, yeah, don't they make wind turbines and F-35 jets too? Don't they own Olbermann, Maddow, and Matthews? Haven't they been lobbying more than normal? Maybe GE is special? Maybe they are the uncorporation corporation? After all, their CEO does sit on Obama's economic council (read more here).
So what's your excuse for PhRMA? Hat tip to Left Coast Rebel.
