How an industry shifted from protecting patients to seeking profit

https://stanmed.stanford.edu/2017spring/how-health-insurance-changed-from-protecting-patients-to-seeking-profit.html




"Health care industry on track for massive profits"

Quote
With more than a week to go in the second-quarter earnings season, the health care industry has already banked more profits than any other quarter in the past year.

The bottom line: Company after company has posted profits that have exceeded Wall Street estimates, and most firms have raised profit estimates for the rest of 2018.

How do politicians plan on paying for more 'free' (Medicare expansion) and affordable (rising premium) when the health care industry is on track for record profits?

When does it end?  How do working families and taxpayers get relief?
