It will take public funds and turn them over to corporations . Being private ,these entities are not required to account to the taxpayers-only to their investors ,for the decisions they make about OUR health . Their failures and misdeeds will be hidden behind their corporate doors . Their formulas will be trade secrets , just as Diebolds software was.
Because they are for profit , these decisions will be based on profit returns, not healthcare excellence.
Because they will receive billons in taxpayers monies they will have limitless funds to fight reform, as we have seen Wall St do, with the bail out..
Investors will demand less hospital staffing and determine doctors decisions , yet insurance companies cannot be sued for malpractice .
