Rep. Dennis Kucinich is heading up a House Oversight and Government Reform
Committee Subcommittee (h/t DF) hearing on the impact of private health insurance companies on patients’ medical care right now. He and Representative Conyers and Representative Kennedy are slaughtering private health insurance company executives. Conyers is particularly fantastic – and not just because he has cited Health Care for America Now and our reports on market consolidation, big insurance profits, and CEO compensation.
The private insurance executives are doing an excellent job of shrugging their shoulders and feigning ignorance. If you take their word (or lack of word) for it, they apparently know a whole lot of nothing about anything related health insurance reform.
