WE WON'T BE SAFE WHILE POLITICAL PARTIES ARE LEGAL

FORMER CIGNA PUBLIC RELATIONS EXECUTIVE POTTER TELLS ALL

Posted by politicalpartypooper on August 18, 2009

Former CIGNA spokesman Wendell Potter has a lot to say about the insurance insdustry’s efforts against reform.  Going so far as to say,

“What I’m trying to do as I write and speak out against the insurance industry I was a part of for nearly two decades is to inform Americans that when they hear isolated stories of long waiting times to see doctors in Canada and allegations that care in other systems is rationed by “government bureaucrats,” someone associated with the insurance industry wrote the original script.”

Wendell Potter used to control the spin in the media regarding his former employer, CIGNA Insurance.  It was his job to convince reporters to write positive stories about the industry’s ideas on reform.  Talk about message control.

“So the next time you hear someone warning against a “government takeover” of our health care system, or that the creation of a public health insurance option would send us down the “slippery slope toward socialism,” know that someone like I used to be wrote those terms, knowing it might turn many of the very people who would benefit most from meaningful reform into unwitting spokespeople for the industry.”

Potter has been promoting the President’s Health Care reform goal, and his buddies in the industry have been trying to shut him up.  I’m giving this link to all of my conservative friends.  If you support health care reform, maybe you should, too.
