Insurance Companies Cancelling Sick Patients

This important viral video needs to get out as soon as possible to the whole country. Please pass it around and let the country understand what assholes we have running our insurance companies. Watch these insurance execs squirm and evade as they are questioned. There is something reptilian and oily about their responses. From Nancy Pelosi's Youtube page.....

Today, the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing entitled "Terminations of Individual Health Policies by Insurance Companies." The hearing examined the practice of "post-claims underwriting," which occurs when insurance companies cancel individual health insurance policies after providers submit claims for medical services rendered.

The Committee conducted an investigation into the
practice of health insurance rescission, and the results were alarming. Over the past five years, almost 20,000 individual insurance policyholders have had their policies rescinded by the three insurance companies who testified today: Assurant, UnitedHealth Group, and WellPoint.

Remember, please pass this video around. Let's show the world what kind of creatures are running the single most costly industry to the average American, medical insurance. The only way to get to single payer health care, is to force congress to act. If this video doesn't piss some people off, I don't know what would.
