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.

    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.
