Comments: A Bad Combination/Quote Bleg

You might be thinking of another Bastiat quote, the precise words escape me, but it's something like, "A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul"

May not be exactly what you're looking for, but it was the first thing to come to mind...

oops - it turns out that quote is accredited to George Bernard Shaw, not Bastiat.
