There is no “patient interest group” in DC to hold our Medical Care System accountable representing we, the people’s, interest. People may think or say we need fundamental changes or a complete rebuild, but how are they going to do that at the federal level when they’ve turned over the decision-making process to the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, Big Pharma, etc?
I don’t believe our congresspeople are representing our best interests. They’re influenced by the multi-million dollar lobbying budgets from the big corporate medical players. And right now, with no significant pressure to answer for the 100,000 lives that are lost due to medical errors, the Medical Care system is doing what it wants, at our expense.
