Wendell Potter testifies

Former health insurance industry exec and current health care reform advocate Wendell Potter (who will speak at an NC Policy Watch Crucial Conversation [1]on Tuesday the 29th) spoke before the House Democratic Steering Committee yesterday in Washington. His message: “don’t give up on the public option.”

But I have also expressed concern that if Congress goes along with the so-called ‘solutions’ the insurance industry says it is bringing to the table and acquiesces to the demands it is making of lawmakers, and if it fails to create a public insurance option to compete with private insurers, the bill it sends to the president might as well be called the Insurance Industry Profit Protection and Enhancement Act.”
