Wendell Potter, Health Insurance Expert, on the "Repeal Obamacare" Movement

If you read nothing else on this blog, you have to read this remarkably insightful and clear piece by Wendell Potter, former health insurance executive turned whistleblower, on the real goals of the Repeal Obamacare movement in Congress.

And before the right-wing nuts start protesting that Potter uses the phrase "deadly spin" to describe conservative efforts to change the law, hence liberals are guilty of the same behavior they accuse right-wingers of, consider this: 45,000 people or more die in the United States every year of preventable or curable illnesses because they are uninsured or underinsured. So, tell me, how's that for deadly, and for false equivalences?
