In related news, SEIU is crowing about radical president Andy Stern’s listing among the “Top Ten Most Powerful People in Healthcare”:
SEIU President Andy Stern has been named in the top ten of Modern Healthcare’s ranking of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare, announced today in the publication’s August 24 edition.
It’s an honor to make Modern Healthcare’s listing of the ‘Top 100’ most influential “movers and shakers in healthcare”–and this year marks the fifth year in a row Stern has been named in the annual rankings. Stern is referred to as one of “the chief architects of healthcare reform,” alongside other top contenders President Barack Obama, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Sen. Baucus (D-Mont.) and OMB director of the White House Office Peter Orszag.
That’s what $61 million in union dues and the “persuasion of power” buys you.
