Ahhh back to the heath care battle. The dems are now scrambling behind closed doors as the Health Insurance companies with their huge pocket books are not playing nice anymore.
And then this is where must merge the conservative-leaning Finance Committee legislation with a more liberally drawn bill approved by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.
So whats the difference? The Finance Committee bill and the health committee legislation involves a government-run insurance company — the public option.
The health committee bill provides for a robust public option designed to compete head-on with insurance companies and force them to rein in costs.
So what are the health insurance companies doing?
They are sending a strong message that health care legislation will drive up premiums for people who already have coverage comes as a warning shot at a crucial point in the debate, and threatens President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.
So whats the fear for the dems you say/ well back in the 90’s it was the Insurance industry that destroyed President Bill Clinton’s health care plan by fanning fears that people with coverage would wind up paying more.
