Wal-Mart’s Strange Alliance


I have a piece up at Forbes today talking about the strange alliance between Wal-Mart, SEIU, and the Center for American Progress on health-care reform. I agree with the gist of Mark Hemingway’s Corner post on this subject yesterday, and add some additional pieces of information. For instance, Wal-Mart has given over $500,000 to CAP, and the SEIU website continues to criticize Wal-Mart on other issues. The bottom line is that Wal-Mart should not count on this deal buying them a lot of long-term credibility on the Left.
