Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
Making Rick Scott the front man for the medical industrial complex’s attack against health care reform is like hiring Dracula to head a Red Cross blood drive.
Scott is the former Columbia/HCA CEO whose company was fined, between 2000-2002, a record $1.7 billion for overbilling state and federal government health plans. He is now associated with a group calling itself Conservatives for Patients’ Rights. (CPR? How ironic.)
And the company running the advertising campaign, CRC Public Relations? The same people who ran the despicable Swift Boat campaign against John Kerry.
Hubris trumps hypocrisy once again.
