That's starting to sounds like manslaughter at the least, premeditated murder at the worst.

No laws to stop us, or hurt our profits

Seemed like a cover-up?!

look there is nothig scary at all about an unwatched unregulated completely free market space in whcih anyone can attempt to make money in anyway way all.
the only reason any of those medical devices had any issues ta all was entirely the fault of any gubment fooking around attempting to oversee anything.

Obviously had we just 100% left the market to its own, then clearly none of those faulty devices would have made their way onto the market in the first place. Because the very best watchdog of the market is in fact the market itself.

Just like how as long as we leave everything about over seeing the police to the police, they consistently find they have committed no wrong doings. So obviously it is only when we try to meddle in other people's business that things get messed up.

Nothing scary at all about it. A human free to do anything they want to get whatever they arbitrarily decide they deserve, is totally the coolest idea ever.

The most profitable rule set for the device makers is one where they don't have to safety test, don't have to pay taxes, and can't be sued if they screw up and kill someone.

Since 2016, at least 1.1 million incidents have flowed into the internal "alternative summary reporting" repository, instead of being described individually in the widely scrutinized public database known as MAUDE, which medical experts trust to identify problems that could put patients in jeopardy.

There's responsible reporting of equipment failures.

AND THEN THERE'S MAUDE.

So, it looks like the entire healthcare industry is run by cartoon villains.
