have you been wondering?

if you’ve been wondering what’s been happening in portland, now you know.

when insurance companies run hospitals by proxy; when patients/procedures face a caste-like division in which “profitable/not profitable” = “crap/not crap;” when caregivers are almost as alienated as the ghettoized patients, and almost as consistently on the business end of “blame the victim” finger-pointing; when any oversight, when there is oversight, is toothless and ex post facto; well, juxtapose this to the most pessimistic projections of socialized medicine, and you’re still left with the fact that our system is at best a socialized abandonment, it’s product a congress of dead people who needn’t’ve died.

personally i think the situation’s worse than that.
