BlueCross BlueShield continues to coerce and intimidate its customers into protesting healthcare reform:
A small business owner in the Kansas-City area who carries BCBS insurance for her employees forwards us a letter she received earlier this month from BCBS of Kansas City. The letter, from Tom Bowser, the CEO of BCBS-KC, describes the public option as an “unnecessary government intrusion in the private financing of health-care,” which will “cause millions to lose their current private coverage,” and will create “long waits for service with some providers closing their doors.” [...]
Bowser closes by telling recipients: “I am asking that you personally engage on these issues by calling or writing your member of Congress.” A sample letter to lawmakers, which expresses “deep concern” about reform, follows Bowser’s letter…..
This ought to be investigated and BCBS ought to be penalized. Much like the cartel as a whole, this is about coercing people based upon their will to live. The cartel capitalizes on the fact that humans don’t want to die, so it’s engaged in selling us life, and it knows that we’ll pay any price for it. So imagine being a customer receiving a letter like this. Do you ignore it, or do you send the letter for fear of BCBS dropping your policy?
In other words, this is exactly illustrative of a system that’s corrupt and broken — a system in which we’re all enslaved by a criminal enterprise that shamelessly engages in extortion and blackmail in order to turn a profit.
