Fascinating write-up. They make an example of a Dr. Prem Reddy, who owns 8 hospitals in California. (Emphasis mine.)
Dr. Reddy--who is, incidentally a high-powered Republican donor--has a principled reason for his piratical practices. "Patients," the Los Angeles Times reports him as saying, "may simply deserve only the amount of care they can afford." He dismisses as "an entitlement mentality" the idea that everyone should be getting the same high-quality healthcare. This is Bush's vaunted principle of "private medicine" at its nastiest: You don't get what you need, only what you can pay for.
Sobering at the least; infuriating at the worst.
