    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. :clap2: :clap2: :clap2:

    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.

    And the neotards are arguing against health reform!! If that person dies due to lack of insurance.. I hope the CEO of guardian insurance is rung up on murder charges... But then 42,000 people die each year for reasons such as this..

    And yet you rebuttlicans still argue for the insurance companies..

    The health insurance companies brought this on themselves.

    Most Republicans are going crazy to protect these companies. Blue dogs are Republicans in Democratic clothing.

    They say it's "capitalism". But if you don't sell anything or make anything, if your entire business is to skim money off Americans to give CEO's mansions, then where is the capitalism?

    I understand that Republicans feel only rich people make jobs and rich people know the best way to spend money, I just don't understand why? Why don't Republicans ever represent the interest of the middle class? Why the war?

    You will see very few Republicans answering this thread. They can't. They know they can't. When an insurance executive refers to sick people as "dogs", I wonder if the majority of Republicans are secretly laughing behind a single hand. You know they think it's funny.

    Yeah, and the solution Obama is offering: Moving from a 95% Government controlled Health-Care System to a 100% Government controlled Health-Care System.
    Change is a real bitch.

    $1 million a year for treatment would be rationed in a country with socialized medicine. They simply could not afford it for one person.

    95 % goverment controlled? Health Insurance companies are exempt from the same laws that most other industries must adhere too.
