John Oliver Goes For Blood To Rip Dialysis Companies

Taco Bell and your kidneys are mentioned together — not a good thing.

John Oliver is looking out for your kidneys, America.

With surgical precision the comedian went after the for-profit dialysis industry on Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight.”

Oliver called out companies accused of putting the bottom line before the well-being of patients.

The host succeeded in painting a dark picture with a light touch. We get a swashbuckling CEO who loves “The Man in the Iron Mask,” Taco Bell and an alleged revenue-maximizing plot “that is the biggest waste of drugs since anyone who’s done cocaine in a windstorm.”

By the end, you might be laughing through your anger.
