HCR and the S & P Downgrade

Writing about HCR and its alleged contribution to the S & P downgrade (in Becker's ASC Review), Tom Mallon, CEO, Regent Surgical Health, stated "If an insurance executive ran a regulated insurance company this way, he would be jailed for 'diversion' and 'co-mingling funds.'  This is not far from the "Madoff-esque" Ponzi schemes that receive so much publicity."   The story is entitled:  Why Did Standard & Poors Downgrade the United States? (and What It Says About Healthcare Reform).
