James Rapp: Hat in hand hospitals

Hat in hand hospitals

I read with amusement in the May 10 N&O that hospitals have launched an army of lobbyists to plead poverty. Shortly afterward I turned on the TV and got a dose of ads decrying the plight of hospitals. Perhaps they should ax the ads and the lobbyists and use the money saved to provide medical care at a reasonable cost.
