Pharma Watch: Health Insurance CEO’s refuse…

HI jokeAre you FURIOUS yet?

An article and NPR report describing the hearings where insurance CEO’s absolutely refused to give up their companies’ “right” to retroactively terminate a health insurance policy when someone gets a serious illness.  (LINK)  

An LA Times story on the same hearings is here.  (LINK)

Not FURIOUS yet?

A study from the government showing this startling new news:  We are paying lots more for health insurance than we should be!!!!  And the price is going up really, really fast!!!! Wow!!   (LINK)

The recent rapid rise in health care stock prices have investors celebrating the presumptive failure of any meaningful health care reform.  Are you going to let that happen???

Keep the Preasure On  – ASAP – Call, write, fax or e-mail all your representatives and tell them they must support Single Payer  HR676.    LINK

Now Call or Fax  Senator Max Baucus and tell him that SINGLE PAYER is indeed on the table &  let him know how much you “don’t respect” his performance!   And, remind him that he is representing the country, NOT  the health insurance & pharma industry in Healthcare Reform!  Phone: (202) 224-2651 (Office)   //  (202) 224-9412 (Fax)

And one moreCall President Obama at the White House (202-456-1414 or  202- 456-1111) and tell him what a mess Senator Max Baucus is making, arresting Doctors and Nurses, etc …  then remind him he said, “everyone would have a seat at the table”, tell him Single Payer is not for later, the time is NOW!
