SEANC to Blue Cross: Stop fighting health reform!

Like many organizations, the State Employees Association of North Carolina is sick of Blue Cross and Blue Shield using misleading propaganda to fight against health reform. State workers are planning to hold a rally in front of Blue Cross headquarters in Chapel Hill to demand that the insurance company stop fighting against the public option.

Many people have reason to be outraged at the behavior of Blue Cross, but state employees should be especially angered that they are now paying much more for health care benefits because Blue Cross was able to get a sweetheart deal on administering the State Health Plan.

The protest begins at 10am in Chapel Hill on 1830 US 15-501 North on the frontage road in front of Blue Cross.

    “As a former health care giver, I am shocked and saddened to see what has become of health care in America. $ 1. 4 million is being spent per day in DC by the health care lobbyists so your elected representative is getting taken care of and has quality health care we pay for and can’t afford ourselves for our families, I know what is deemed, defended and supported in Tennessee and Virginia as quality health care and clearly profit care comes ahead of patient care. http://www.wisecountyissues.com/?p=62 MRSA ( methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureas ) is infesting our communities because filthy, uncaring hospitals and emergency rooms are breeding them and spreading them into our schools, homes, restaurants. How many more Americans’ will be diseased or die while 74 % of Americans’ are begging for health care reform ? More people died in America last year from MRSA complications than AIDS. When MRSA and a flu bug start mixing, it won’t be pretty and we are being infected by the very health care system we depend on and trust to keep us safe and healthy.”
