MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's Special Comment on Health Care and Congress
The CC doesn’t normally cover politics, but one CC member became outraged after receiving several thousand dollars in medical bills for minor procedures. Fully insured, they discovered the discounts posted on the bills went to the insurance company, the balance was theirs. They wondered what the insurance company actually covered. Not much it appeared.
While Olbermann’s commentary is only one view, it points out how important getting all of the facts will be in order to achieve real reform. We in the CC don’t necessarily advocate government sponsored health care, just affordable health care that actually covers more rather than less.
