Won't Someone Think Of The Poor Health Insurance Companies?!?!?!

Protect Insurance Companies PSA from Will Ferrell Forget everything you've heard about the 45,000 people who die in the U.S. each year because of no

Forget everything you've heard about the 45,000 people who die in the U.S. each year because of no insurance (for some perspective, remember that that is 15 times the number of people who died on 9/11, 10 times the number of allied soldiers killed in Iraq and 5 1/2 times the number of Americans killed from Hurricane Katrina. Every year.). Forget about the millions of un- and under-insured Americans in the richest Western nation on the planet. Forget about the highest per capita medical costs and among the worst outcomes of the industrialized nations. Forget about being dropped for pre-existing conditions, like pregnancy or acne as a teenager.

None of that matters. Those Hollywood elites, like Will Ferrell, remind us who the true victims of health care reform are: the health insurance companies. Who will protect them?

Oh, that's right, the Blue Dogs will. It's sad when such an obvious example of parody and illogic actually accurately reflects the thinking of our elected representatives.
