In a country that values capital accrual before all else we should not be too surprised when business types try to leverage their relationship with power into……….you guessed it……..revenue.
In this case Mar-a-Lago cronies of former president Trump tried to gain access to VA patients confidential medical records to help big Pharma and other so-called health care related companies sell their products to injured and sick veterans. Everyone makes money at the expense of the U.S. government and in many cases the veteran’s themselves.
Medicynical Note: In the U.S. there is no healthcare system, rather there is a very well developed revenue generating system. It’s goal is revenue generation not improved health care outcomes. It’s the money stupid.
