Professor Ray La Raja comments in Bloomberg BNA

Raymond J. La Raja, political science, comments in a story about why the American Hospital Association has been giving political contributions to Republican lawmakers who support repealing and replacing Obamacare, a position the AHA doesn’t support. “A lot of times people think money is there to change votes, it’s really not there to change votes,” La Raja says. “Most of the time it is to support the people that agree with you so you are not changing their vote and it is also given to maintain access with people who may or may not agree with you.” Bloomberg BNA
