Seriously, WTF? I understand many businesses seem to think anything that keeps them from making as much $$ as possible is illegitimate and/or a threat to capitalism/apple pie/mom, but ISTM complying with the law/regulation while trying to get things changed - while problematic for many reasons - would be the prudent course for business owners/managers. Instead, it appears actively violating the law while covering your tracks and/or deceiving authorities is often chosen. And who are these in-house lawyers blessing all this stuff - although I suppose sometimes they are circumvented.
I wonder if that this case and the VW emissions cheating was done with software somehow makes it less "real." That is, because it's the software doing the work of deceiving/cheating it seems more okay than if, e.g., the owner/managers had to personally lie to government officials.
Anyways, I was thinking of drafting a longer post on how anyone who thinks healthcare costs could be brought under control by somehow incentivizing "healthcare consumers" to make choices based on prices is nuts, based on recent personal experience, but that was going to be too much work for a Friday.
Instead - OPEN THREAD!
Anyone going to see Logan this weekend?
