Every Friday Vestact MD Paul Theron rants (literally) about “business blunders” of the week.
This time around he railed against the NHI Bill, which he finds despicable.

It’s NOT going to be f...ing fine... The f...ing pirates have boarded the ship!... It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee!— Paul Theron, Vestact - MD
This thing needs to be resisted in its entirety because it’s an attack on personal freedom and individual liberty in this country. It’s time to lawyer up! It’s going to be an epic fight.— Paul Theron, Vestact - MD
