Posted in Uncategorized by T.Salami on August 10, 2009

Apparently Rick Scott and the group Conservatives for Patient’s rights have a big responsibilty in causing what you see in the video below.

Here is a little dish on Rick Scott: He created the organzation Conservatives for Patient’s rights and has been advicing people (mainly conservatives it seems) on the locations and times of town meetings where they can voice their frustration about Obama’s health reform plan.

Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman criticized the group in the New York Times as pretending to be a grassroots movement of citizens. When in actuality the citizens were bussed in to congress person’s local meetings and the group was being led by [Rick Scott]. via Op-Ed Columnist – The Town Hall Mob – NYTimes.com.

Wait there’s more. Rick Scott became rich of America’s failing health system and if that is not enough, the hospital company he created Colombia/HCA was awarded the largest fine in U.S. history of 1.7 billion dollars for defrauding the government.

And you wonder why U.S. health costs are rising? When people like Rick Scott are getting rich of those in need of health services by upscaling prices (treating people for something minor and charging the government and tax payers a higher price for the service?)

And this is whose position Palin is siding with? Calling Obama’s plan downright evil?

She needs a reality check. Perhaps a better US health system could give her a dose or two that would perhaps allow her to see things differently.
