Healthcare Reform and a Scary Fact
We haven't broached the politics subject yet....but figured now is as good of a time as any.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission Filings reported that profits for the 10 largest insurance companies increased from 2.4 billion to 12.7 billion from 2000-2007, while the number of uninsured increased 19%. Kind of hard to explain that one. And we are supposed to believe the rhetoric that if a public option exists the private insurers wont survive. Come on. Not to mention that the average salary for the CEOs of these insurance companies is 11.4 million!
Here is a link from a fellow blogger that has lots of the most up to date information and videos on the health care debate. View if your interested.
