Fat and Happy

Abby Zimet

Robert Reich takes a stab
at Anthem Blue Cross - its 39% proposed rate hike, $2.7 billion
profits, invincibility from competition and, oh yeah, its
shamelessness. All of which makes it the perfect argument for health
care reform.

"(Parent company) WellPoint is fat and
happy, which makes Anthem fat and happy. Everyone is fat and happy
except Anthem's policy holders, who are being skewered."


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
