There is nothing, absolutely nothing, so inhumane as for-profit healthcare. Except maybe allowing corporations to offload all their retirement obligations onto employees after decades of defined benefit pensions and forcing them to gamble on the whims of the giant casino that is the global stock market. Healthcare and retirement have become winner take all competitions. It’s social Darwinism and a race to the bottom for the American citizen. We have the power to vote them out of office. But, what we don’t have, is a factually informed citizenry that knows what is actually being crammed down their throats. The choice between bad and worse is no choice at all.
