Pelosi refers to health care insurance companies as immoral

For those of you who work for a health care insurance company, I want you to read what she said after her weekly press conference yesterday. Not only did she say that health care insurance companies are the real problem, she called their actions – your actions if you work in the industry – immoral.

From, with my emphasis added.

“The public option — that’s where the insurance companies are making their attacks — it’s almost immoral what they are doing,” said Pelosi, addressing reporters outside her office.

“Of course, they’ve been immoral all along,” she added. “They are the villains in this. They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening, and the public has to know. They have had a good thing going for a long time at the expense of the American people and the health of our country.”

Not only are health insurance company employees doing everything they can to keep their jobs, they are also doing everything they can to save health care as we know it.

When the government creates their plan, they are going to undercut the premiums offered by private health care companies. To stay in business, health insurance companies will need to make some hard decisions to stay competitive with the government.

But, when you can’t print money and can’t operate at a loss for year after year after year, why continue to stay in business?

And that friends, is exactly what the federal government politicians want.

For those of you who work in the health care insurance field and voted for President Obama and others like the House speaker in November, is this a surprise to you? It’s not a surprise to me, they have been telling us exactly who they are – and what they want to implement – for years.

    Coming from a woman that advocates abortions, immorality would seem to be lie in her court, not insurance companies.

    And if she is so adamant about the "public having to know", then why is she, Reid and Obama ramming through this legislative boondoggle without even the legislators being able to read it, much less John Q. Public.

    Didn't she read the warning labels on the Botox bottles?

    These politicians voted Against the Nathan Deal Amendment, that would Prevent Health Care Benefits to Illegal Aliens. Simply put–it's not their BLOODY MONEY! So what! Do they care if taxpayers have to foot the behemoth bill, for anybody who snubs our laws and enters a sovereign country called America? The nationwide parasites are –CHEAP LABOR–businesses who could care less, because they pile up enormous profits. The corporate hierarchy have been having a field day–FOR DECADES. A foreign national gets hurt, their service manager or whoever the underling is, drives the maimed person and relinquishes any responsibility  by dumping them on the emergency hospital entranceway. BINGO! nothing to pay!

    Perhaps Americans should find some old shoddy clothes, no shave, no haircut and enter every emergency room in our country in the millions?  Speak a lot of gibberish and carry  no identification  with a small  splinter in their finger,  a touch of a fever  or any minor condition.  By federal law the hospital will have an emergency on a–EMERGENCY.  I am afraid Americans have been Lemmings going over a proverbial cliff, since who knows when? We just keep paying and paying even more to the IRS, to support–ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Try getting free health care in any other country, other than societies in the European Union? A FAT CHANCE! We are literary being taxed to death, to give welfare to the business overlords. These legislators have already tried to weaken E-Verify, local police action 287(g) and now unwinding the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli enforcement law–which worked, but again was never enforced.

    Even our Democrats who are trying to engineer health care for every American—INCLUDED 20 PLUS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR LARGE FAMILIES. Here are 29 Judas Iscariot's, who sold the  American people out–for a lot more than  13 pieces of silver?  HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR. Capps (D-CA), Eshoo (D-CA), Harman (D-CA), Matsui (D-CA), McNerney (D-CA), Waxman (D-CA), DeGette (D-CO), Murphy (D-CT), Castor (D-FL), Rush (D-IL), Schakowsky (D-IL), Braley (D-IA), Sarbanes (D-MD), Markey (D-MA), Dingell (D-MI), Stupak (D-MI), Pallone (D-NJ), Weiner (D-NY), Butterfield (D-NC), Space (D-OH), Sutton (D-OH), Doyle (D-PA), Gordon (D-TN), Gonzalez (D-TX), Green (D-TX),Welch (D-VT), Christensen (D-VI), Inslee (D-WA) and Baldwin (D-WI). I'm afraid I would be banned if  I used the right epithet, when leaving a comment for these so called lawmakers?

    These are the betrayers of–ALL–taxpayers. These 29 traitors gave illegal immigrants the right to pilfer your billfold and purse, while they sit in their Washington office collecting their 6 figure salaries. REMEMBER THEM AND THROW THEM OUT!  DEMAND NO AMNESTY! NO FAMILY UNIFICATION KNOWN AS CHAIN MIGRATION! BUILD THE ORIGINAL FENCE!  NO MORE HEALTH CARE OR ANY OTHER KIND OF BENEFITS FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. CLOSE THE BORDER AND STATION THE NATIONAL GUARD. $2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS, JUST IN RETIREMENT BENEFITS? Learn uncorrupted facts at NUMBERSUSA. For myself and family! I am for any health care re-organization, as long as it doesn't smell of copious profiteering  and corruption, like the majority of private insurers do?
