How Greedy, Murderous, Vicious, And Cold Are Health Insurance Companies?

From the Washington Times:

In an e-mail, one Guardian Life Insurance Co. executive called high-cost patients such as Mr. [Ian]Pearl "dogs" that the company could "get rid of."

Mr. Pearl is 37. He suffers from spinal muscular dystrophy. His parents pay $3700 a month for health insurance from Guardian. Pearl will die without the care he now receives.

Rather than continue to pay for his care, Guardian cancelled certain lines of coverage in entire states. The Federal courts allowed them to do that.

It must be nice to be in Guardian’s position. If they don’t like a contract they agreed to they can just bow out. And if somebody dies, oh well, that’s the cost of doing business. Right?

If you get sick, your insurance company calls you a dog. You know what happens to sick dogs, don’t you? Does the phrase ‘treated like a dog’ resonate with you? Welcome to the land of greed and the home of the craven.

That’s health insurance in America.

Maybe someday we can get health care in America, you know, like the rest of the civilized world.

    • It would be more appropriate to use a broom to chase her out of the country, probably across the Bering Strait into Russia, a country about which she knows all there is to know. Really. Just ask her. Or Charlie.
