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 Politico.com, 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.
