OK, it’s a flippant title for a disturbing post.
Via a friend, I see that Capitalism Über Alles is infecting dentistry now.
This is why we need universal single-payer health care. I want doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to make a good living, one that recognizes their talents, training/education and hard work. What I do not want is parasitic health insurance companies and private equity firms (like Mitt R-money’s Bain Capital) cannibalizing health care.
Since Towel Day is approaching (one week!), a Douglas Adams quote seems appropriate.
“You know they’ve reintroduced the death penalty for insurance company directors?”
“Really?” said Arthur. “No I didn’t. For what offence?”
“What do you mean, offence?”
