$50 Million Buys Fake Grassroots Healthcare Profiteer A Chance for Governorship


Rick Scott is now the Republican candidate for governor of Florida. Have you read Rick Scott’s Wikipedia entry recently? It’s really amazingly off-putting! It’s unfathomable that you could read it and think something like: “Yes! This man has my best interests at heart!” In any event, he spent $50 million and now the Republican party has to support him. Actually, according to his campaign, he won because of this: “We had a campaign of people who were tired of the traditional establishment. They are tired of the same old thing.” But I guess they’re not tired of billionaires who provide “Starbucks-style” medical care to the vast market of uninsured people while lobbying against healthcare reform.
