Health insurers full of shit, should be replaced by single payer.

Health Insurers Seek Higher Premiums - NYTimes.com:
The increase in premiums was striking because in a poor economy, many people put off going to doctors, to avoid co-payments and higher deductibles. Despite a decrease in the use of medical services, companies have defended higher premiums — and their high profits — reasoning that their costs would rebound once the economy recovered.
Ho ho ho. I also anticipate an economic rebound and would like a pay increase commensurate with this anticipated better economic conditions.

I am always surprised when people are opposed to going to government run health care. Do such people seriously think that the private insurance companies are doing a good job?
