Deception On Health Care Reform

Former Corporate Communications chief for CIGNA and Humana, Wendell Potter, contends that "insurance company PR is killing health care and deceiving Americans". Potter is now the Senior Fellow on Health Care for the Center for Media and Democracy.

At a time when Republicans are planning to repeal healthcare reform, Potter argues that they "will ultimately settle for gutting the law of its provisions that protect consumers. That’s because the insurance industry is a major beneficiary of healthcare reform and they’re also a major contributor to Republican campaigns."

Two years ago, Potter quit CIGNA and testified to Congress on controversial insurance industry practices.
