- During the call, a blogger from Maine said he kept running into an Investors Business Daily article that claimed Section 102 of the House health legislation would outlaw private insurance. He asked: “Is this true? Will people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?” President Obama replied: “You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about.” (quote begins at 17:10)
- This is a truly disturbing admission by the President, especially considering that later in the call, Obama promises yet again: “If you have health insurance, and you like it, and you have a doctor that you like, then you can keep it. Period.” How can Obama keep making this promise if he is not familiar with the health legislation that is being written in Congress? Details matter.
Then, my friend Cassy posted this on her blog:
If I hear one more liberal say that health insurance companies are corrupt, I am going to throw a fit! Maybe Spencer can join me because he is really good at those.
I work for The Regence Group which is the BlueShield and BlueCross brand in WA, OR, ID and UT. Regence is by far the most ethical, caring, outstanding company I have ever worked for (and I’ve had a lot of jobs over the years). In 2008 Regence had a profit of 0.5%, so they’re not exactly living large off their member’s premiums.
In a memo about the current health care reform debate going on in Washington, the CEO of Regence said, “Much of the current debate focuses on expanding access, government control and entitlement – all at tremendous cost and certain to result in growth of deficit spending – without serious, thoughtful provisions for changing the culture in health care finance and delivery, which causes waste and drives up costs. We can and must do better as a nation.”
Regence recently launched a web site to educate consumers on the real cost of health care; whatstherealcost.org. This site is full of facts that are helping me understand better what is wrong with our system and that the proposals currently being discussed in Washington are only going to make the problem worse.
We have to speak up and stop this "sweeping legislation" from passing. Contact your senators and Congressman. Come on folks, let's let our voices be heard.
