Think Progress » Insurance company executive refers to high-cost patients as ‘dogs.’ Mmm, it's a good thing that the Republicans and some Democrats are protecting such businesses like Guardian Life Insurance Co. and keeping those dogs down. Goodness knows what would happen to the bottom lines if the insurance companies actually had to do what they're paid for. That would be actually doing their job, now what kind of standard would that set? Hooray for Republicans and some Democrats and their preventing of any real fixing in Health Care! Hooray for Republicans and some Democrats just looking out for Big Businesses with wanting Tort Reform! Hooray for Republicans and some Democrats wanting to offer tax credits to the poor who have no money to tax in the first place, genius idea! Let's all give them a round of applause. -------- Now back in reality, WHAT THE FUCK. Seriously? Is this what we have come to? These companies see us as dogs and some of you people want to protect them? You can feel free to be their bitches but I'll settle for not such bullshit. That executive deserves to be fired and this company should not be legally allowed to do this to this poor man.
