(Bloomberg Politics) — What a tangled web presidential candidates weave.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will step down from the board of Tenet Healthcare Corp., a Texas-based company that has seen big profits thanks to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the Los Angeles Times reported.
Bush will disentangle himself from Tenet Healthcare effective Dec. 31, the second such move he has made since announcing that he will “actively explore” a 2016 run for the White House. Earlier this month Bush announced that he would end his advisory role with Barclays Bank.
The number of people signing up for insurance through the PPACA Medicaid expansion program has been great business for Tenet Heatlhcare.
