    And yet they deny life-saving treatment.

    The health care industry is awash in cash

    Chart at link

    The health care industry recorded an immensely profitable first quarter, according to an analysis of financial documents for 108 companies. Year-over-year earnings among the 10 biggest health care corporations by net profit soared by 8.4%.

    Yes, but: Wall Street wants more. The S&P 500 health care index so far this year is trailing the broader S&P 500 as well as other industries, including energy and technology.

    When you can use government to herd your customers, profits are essentially guaranteed.
