As a rebuttal to the BS from the interviewed health insurance public relations offices, let's hear what Wendell Potter -- one of their own for 20 years -- had to say before the US Senate.

But the invisible hand of the market will take care of everything!

It would be nice if we would undo enough regulation to give the invisible hand a fighting chance.

Seriously, I fight against insurance companies for a living, and it's absolutely true that insurance companies make things difficult as part of their business practice (some of them worse than others). But a lot of that is because of regulation.

And in addition, they scream out for more regulation because they use it as a shield against (1) lawsuits to punish them for unfair and deceptive practices, and (2) new competition.

And the WORST in my experience are governmental or quasi-governmental entities that are immune to suit for unfair insurance practices.

In fairness I'm all for certain aspects of what I hear the Republicans touting when it comes to allowing interstate competition.
