“Deadly Spin” January 20, 2011

Filed under: Health Care Reform,Medical Ethics?,Take Action! — aprasek @ 12:32 am

Just got home from a fantastic lecture by Wendell Potter. He even signed my copy of his book, “Deadly Spin.”


Mr. Potter is the whistleblower that brought more attention to the shady practices of health insurance companies (BTW, I keep having the Counting Crows song “Mr. Potter’s Lullaby” run through my head…). You probably heard about (or watched) Mr. Potter’s testimony before the Senate Commerce, Science and Technology Committee in June of 2009, but this guy has a lot more to say… and a lot of it is in his new book. This is information that we should all know– especially those who are insured. Seriously, we should know what we’re paying for right?

Check out his website and get a copy of the book. Comment back here as you read through. This should get interesting….
