Private Insurers Kill Children

Death panels already exist, and they certainly are not government employees...

The Denver Post reports, "at least six major companies — including Anthem, Aetna, Cigna, and Humana — have said they will stop writing new policies for individual children" in Colorado. The companies "blamed health reform mandates taking effect Thursday requiring companies that write such policies as of that date to also cover sick children up to age 19," the paper said.

Thank God (by which I mean Mammon) that everyone has to be covered by private [shyster] insurance before 2014, I'm sure that will work out really well...

Be ready to add more to the 17,000 dead children, thanks to private coverage (or lack thereof when you or your child actually get sick).

And in case you are one of those people who does not believe in “statistics,” here is some anecdotal, heart-wrenching, emotional stuff for you. And here. And here. And here.

  2. Thank you. I thought I'd try it out for a while without anything but the blog title.
