The banner week for Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina continues today as New York Times columnist Paul Krugman takes the company to task in his column “Blue Double Cross.”

Krugman notes that news of the company’s ads attacking President Obama’s health care proposals came just two weeks after health care industry groups came to the White House and pledged their cooperation in working on a plan to expand coverage to all Americans.

That means the ads must have been in the works long before the Kum-Ba-Ya-fest in Washington.  More important is the message of the ads, that government health care will deny your choice of doctor and make you wait forever. Krugman asks the question that begs.
