Why is there no corporate death penalty?
The state of California has fined Blue Cross $1 million for illegally cancelling policies:The investigation found that Blue Cross used computer programs and a dedicated department to systematically cancel the policies of pregnant women and the chronically ill regardless of whether they intentionally lied on their applications to cover up pre-existing medical conditions, a standard required by state law for canceling individual policies. Regulators examined 90 randomly selected cases of policy cancellations and found violations in each one.
A million dollar fine is a cost of doing business.
But as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, murder was done here, and Blue Cross is guilty:
By actuarial laws, some percentage of those pregnant women, and some percentage of those chronically ill are going to die because Blue Cross "violations" meant they were denied care.
Blue Cross murdered those people just as surely as the Totenkopfverbände murdered millions in the camps.
So why don't we try Blue Cross, and then condemn them to death by revoking their corporate charter and seizing their assets?
NOTE Asset seizure presumably works for small fish like dealers, so why not big fish like corporations?
