Giant Blood-sucking Corporate Leeches...

1 post / 0 new

Health insurers are now apparently eager to work alongside federal and state regulators to implement the new health insurance reform, as it will hold off efforts by progressives to re-introduce a public option or single-payer proposals. Speaking at the 9th Annual Employee Benefits Leadership Forum last week, Mike Tuffin, executive VP of the Association of Health Insurance Providers, said. “Whether we like it or not, the bill was passed. Now we must be reliable and effective implementation partners. We need to stay engaged. The single-payer and public-option supporters have not given up.” Of course, they're also working furiously behind the scenes to influence the implementing regulations in ways that are weaker and more friendly to these giant blood-sucking corporate leeches.
