WASHINGTON (Reuters) - United States President Barack Obama will meet insurance industry chief executives on Friday to discuss changes that he has proposed to his signature health-care law to address the outcry over insurance policy cancellations, a White House official said.


I didn't see this in the news today.

  • Your what hurts??
First I've heard of it too.  The only question now is who wants to lynch Obama worse:  Insurance Executives or Red State Democrats??

BTW it's with Aetna, Health net, and several others.. the Blues are not on the list.. which k found interesting since the benificiary of the abovementioned companies pulling out of states like Calif. Has been the Blues.

In my world of wishes, I wish that...

The CEO's would collectively and unequivocally tell Obama to go to hell and walk out.

God, that even felt good typing that.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Anyone hear what the outcome is?   Any word on the nature of Sparky's threats or the amount of his bribe?

Yeah, the most transparent administration in history.   :whistle:

[[ Obama to meet insurers on Friday over health-care law fix: White House official ]]

"Wesley Mouch summons meeting with Hank Rearden and others to "instruct them" on how to fix the economy..."

(Also brings to mind the passage in the book where the Chief of State captures John Galt and holds him prisoner in the Waldorf Astoria, and offers him anything he wants if he will only tell "the Chief" what to do to "fix things"...)

Excellent analogy!

Perfect in fact!
