Crony capitalism: No industry is immune. Especially health care. 

As General Electric gears up to move its headquarters from Fairfield, Conn., to Boston, the people and communities being left behind are dreading the pain to come. The impending exodus of GE after more than 40 years is a blow from which many local companies, and the families that depend on them, may be reeling for years. Tony Hwang, a state senator from Fairfield County, doesn’t exaggerate when he describes GE’s forthcoming move as “a punch in the stomach for the state of Connecticut.” Have you ever paid someone to punch a victim in the stomach? If you’re a Massachusetts taxpayer, you have now.
