Milton Friedman on the unholy coalition of do-gooders and special interests

There are always in these cases two groups of sponsors. There are the well-meaning sponsors and there are the special interests who are using the well-meaning sponsors as front men. You almost always, when you have bad programs, have an unholy coalition of the do-gooders on the one hand and the special interests on the other.

~ Milton Friedman, PBS Open Mind, "Living Within Our Means with Milton Friedman," 1970s?
