Well, she did not. But when Karen Ignagni, president of America's Health Insurance Plans, praised an insurance industry-funded study by PricewaterhouseCoopers, which warns Americans of rising health insurance costs if the health care reform measures that require those with pre-existing conditons to be covered should pass, she unwittingly made the best case for the public option she could have made.
They call it an industry analysis, I call it what is is: blackmail.
Let's throw the whole lot of them insurance industry bums out! We can do health care on OUR terms, like they do in the civilized world, where insurance companies play by the strict rules set for them in the name of public interest. (And no, we cannot call ourselves civilized as long as the current state of health affairs endures.)
