GLENN: Do you have the audio again of SEIU Andy Stern where he says people want a return on their investment? Do you have that? We played that yesterday, and I played that last night. That's some of the most amazing audio I've ever heard. He says the system is corrupt because people are putting their money into it and they're distorting politics. And he admits, I'm distorting politics because that's just the way it is. That's just, you've got to play the game that way.
So listen to what he says, and this is why healthcare is passing.
STERN: This is our America. There's something really fundamentally different that we have to do. And what we have to do is what Rob and Simon are trying to do is we have to think differently about our country. We really are in Team USA right now. The market is not going to work. I mean, that's what all the free marketeers don't want to say. All the things that are going on are telling you the market is not going to work on its own. We've unhinged the market.
GLENN: Stop, stop. Stop there for a second. I thought we were past the worst.
PAT: Yeah, that's
GLENN: We're past the worst. Now all what everybody won't tell you is that the market won't work? Well, huh, I thought we were past the worst. Nobody's telling me that. I'm telling America that. America is telling Washington that. But I don't hear anybody else say that. Do you? No, I uh uh, that's weird. Okay, so go on.
STERN: The market isn't raising wages and bene we have to intervene somehow as a nation and make some very hard choices if Team USA is going to be successful in a global economy. And the politics aren't complicated. You know, people are making investments in politics.
GLENN: Listen to this.
STERN: And they expect a return, I mean, on their investment. There's not ideology involved in corporations. They are looking for a return on their investment. So they are going to make as much investment as they think is good policy. I'm just talking macro. There's lots of individuals
GLENN: Stop. SEIU has spent, according to their own memo, their own press release, $150 million for healthcare. $150 million. They want a return on their investment. Who benefits from healthcare being passed? SEIU. The healthcare union. SEIU, the healthcare union! This is obscene what's happening! And the media is the media is, I mean, the media should be tried. Because the corruption here is unbelievable. And where are the members of the media just explaining that one thing? SEIU: We want a return on our investment. And that's why it's happening. You get into bed with the devil; he expects payment.
