Why are hospital administrators gutless?

As a 1969 graduate of the old hospital administration program at the University of Iowa, I follow how hospitals handle a wide range of issues. The history of hospitals in the United States, from the first one in Philadelphia founded by Ben Franklin and Dr. Thomas Bond until the contamination of the U.S. health care system by the Republican and Ronald Reagan, reflected a sense of community and charitable behavior. Nonprofit corporations and religious sponsorship dominated the hospital sector; and, the behavior of the leadership in the industry reflected that philosophy.

Which is why this story caught my eye.

It's time to wage war for democracy

One of the most important issues we are facing in our current political climate, as the past recess
demonstrated, is that GOPers want to stay loyal to their patrons, not their constituents. Therefore not only must we find a way to reach elected officials but we also need to have them understand the threat from the grass roots. It might be possible to overpower those legal bribe, a/k/a, campaign contributions, from the corporatists and oligarchs, with voices loud enough in the various forms available.
