As Lyndon Johnson used to say about special interests trying to get his support to pass some blatantly self-serving legislation: “They can’t make chicken salad out of chicken [BLEEP!!].”
Yet, chicken [BLEEP!!] is all that the corporate health complex has to work with as it frantically tries to defend its current system of mass malpractice, known as corporate health care. After all, as most Americans have learned the hard way, the corporatized care of profiteering insurance giants, Big Pharma, and hospital chains grossly overcharge us while constantly trying to shortchange or outright deny care to millions of our families.
