Health critic brings a past and a wallet

New York Times, April 2, 2009

Richard L. Scott is a rich, conservative investor willing to spend freely on a political cause. He is starring in his own rotation of advertisements against the broad outlines of President Obama's healthcare plans. He has also dispatched camera crews to other countries to document the perils of socialized medicine. Scott visited with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, and his new group, Conservatives for Patients' Rights, has hired a leading conservative public relations firm to help with the effort.
