Frist votes aid HCA's business interests - Sunday, 12/04/05
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is pushing a "healthy America" plan that includes tax breaks to help the poor buy insurance and legal limits on excessive jury awards that Frist says hurt access to care.
Frist's plan would do something else besides help the poor and reduce what he says are frivolous lawsuits.
It would help make money for HCA Inc., the Nashville-based hospital company that's been the foundation of the Frist family's wealth.
