Read This if You've Been Screwed by Your Health Insurance Provider

Some are lucky to be healthy and rarely need to visit even a primary care physician, let alone a team of specialists. Or if not that, they have great health insurance with low deductibles and access to a huge network of doctors (such as our elected Congressional body, who is now crafting health care reform).

The remaining 99.99% of us can rejoice in witnessing Wendell Potter's testimony before Congress.

Here's how he started out on June 24, 2009:
My name is Wendell Potter and for 20 years, I worked as a senior executive at health insurance companies, and I saw how they confuse their customers and dump the sick – all so they can satisfy their Wall Street investors.
Hopefully this will throw a monkey wrench into any ideas about making health insurance mandatory. Or setting as the lone goal of health care reform that every adult and child have health insurance. All this does is help the health insurance industry by enslaving its customer base.

Anyway, please comment on Mr. Potter's blog if you appreciate his telling the truth.
