The Real Death Panels? . . . Your Health Care Insurance Provider

By William Ehart

Ian Pearl has fought for his life every day of his 37 years. Confined to a wheelchair and hooked to a breathing tube, the muscular dystrophy victim refuses to give up.

But his insurance company already has.

Legally barred from discriminating against individuals who submit large claims, the New York-based insurer simply canceled lines of coverage altogether in entire states to avoid paying high-cost claims like Mr. Pearl's.

I'm still waiting for my conservative friends, or any health-care reform loathing teabagger for that matter, to explain to me their allegiance to these scumbag health insurance companies? I'm all ears!

Oh -- btw, since it's very likely that Mr. Pearl will die without the medical care he has been receiving through his health insurance plan, where are the pro-life voices on this issue? Where is Sarah Palin and her "Obama death panel" warnings? Where is the voice of a single Repukelican Congressman or Senator to denounce these amoral monsters who prioritize company profits over human life?

Yeah that's what I figured.
