“We are held hostage at any given moment by health insurance companies that deny coverage, or drop coverage, or charge fees that people can’t afford at a time when they desperately need care.”
— Barack Obama, Belgrade, Montana, 2009.08.14
Lawyers for the Fundamental Transformation of America (a.k.a. Democrats) are still trying their best— and feeling wonderful about themselves because of it— to ram health-care “reform” down our throats because of, for one reason, those eeeevil insurance companies always denying coverage.
But Beverly Gossage, a researcher at the Show-Me Institute, looked into it. Guess what she found? According to the American Medical Association, Medicare had the highest percentage of denied claims in 2008.
Come on all you health-insurance company hostages. Government will set you free.
