Health Insurance Co Pres. Fired - Why?

Here we go! This is why we at least needed a Public Option, that most people from the radical-right (many armed with guns strapped to their waist and tea bags hanging from their heads) were screaming against, threatening to lynch the politicians who fought for it, at those town hall meetings; And complaining that National/Universal Health Care would be socialised medicine, that nobody should want. And that they did not want the government to mess with their health care. Remember that? Now, that they have seemed to get what they said they wanted, everybody's health insurance rates (including their own) are inevitably going to continue to go-up! Note: With all these things said, I still think there are some good things in the Health Care Reform bill that was just recently signed into law. Such as the fact that health insurance companies will no longer be able to deny people coverage on the basis of pre-existing conditions, etc. But on the down side, this law and provision really doesn't go into effect until something like 2014! If more Progressive Democrats retain their seats, increase in numbers, and have their way, I am somewhat hopeful myself however, that they may very well try to improve on this first step towards real reform, that I believe at least some of them (who are sincere individuals, like Alan Grayson and Dennis Kucinich) had to bite the bullet on...
