Health Insurance Industry Celebrating Profits Ahead

By Glen Rose (Via

I don't know about anyone else but I'm quite disappointed in the so called victory for health care. I was working hard for a Public Option for all Americans to get health coverage at an affordable price. This is no victory. The insurance companies are forced to insure us and not drop us but they can charge what they want and raise prices as they see fit. That's the same as dropping and denying coverage. I would have to pay $900 a month for insurance now. That's not going to change. We are all still w/o insurance. No one is talking about how much the insurance companies can charge. They are popping champagne bottles over their victory. They now have a law that says every citizen must be insured at any price they deem fit to charge. This was a political victory for Obama not for Americans health coverage.
