NC Blue Cross Attacking Obama’s Health Reform – WRAL report

This aired last night. What surprises me most is that NC Blue Cross is still going forward with its plans to attack Obama’s health plan after exposure. And one thing not mentioned directly – the PR firm hired by NC Blue Cross is NC’s Capstrat, owned by Ken Eudy, President Obama’s contributor, “informal adviser“, and big D in NC:

    So If Blue Cross is opposing President Obama’s goal of affordable health insurance, they obviously would prefer and are willing to fight to keep health insurance unaffordable.
    North Carolinians and all Americans deserve affordable health care. We can’t function as a people without it.
    Blue Cross, your arrogance and greed are breathtaking.

    Bob G. can change careers…..the rest of us have

    •We are sick of high deductibles, co-pays, and
    the in-network, out-of-network Rube Goldberg
    system we live under.

    Corporate media in NC needs to spend an hour discussing single payer like Moyers is on PBS tomorrow night.

  3. […] notes that news of the company’s ads attacking President Obama’s health care proposals came just two weeks after health care […]

    I plan to write in the memo line of my BC/BS payment: “I support Universal Health Care, you should too.” If enough people did the same I bet it would get their attention.
