      And the finance and health care industries can assure themselves that Wyden, once bought stays bought. His trade and healthcare votes and related bills directly endanger many of his Liberal positions. So I conclude his rarely successful civil liberty and other Liberal efforts are cover for his effective votes for corporate trade and the healthcare industrial complex.

      And he looks to be providing political cover for Ryan, another darling of finance and big healthcare.

      Saving "Privatizing Ryan" is no favor to Oregonians, Democrats or other Americans.
