Health insurers "deceptive and dishonest": Obama

Dan from New York:

Health insurers "deceptive and dishonest": Obama

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama lashed out on Saturday against the "deceptive and dishonest" efforts of health insurance companies, who he said are trying to kill healthcare reform, no matter the cost to the country.

Sharpening his attack on insurers, Obama also signaled support for a congressional review of the insurance industry's long-standing exemption from federal anti-trust laws. [emphasis mine and hopefully unnecessary] Some Democrats want the privilege repealed.


Our president's message couldn't be louder or clearer: "Dare to defy me and I'll turn the power of my government against you and destroy you." This guy is turning out to be some piece of work, isn't he? And we're just beginning to get to know him.
