Can you remember as far back as the run up to health care reform vote?
I ask this with just a certain amount of sarcasm, as I'm noticing that so many of my fellow Americans seem to suffer from both short and long term memory dysfunction. For example, why are people ragging on Obama for getting us into the life-sucking quicksand of Afghanistan's history when it was Bush who took us there, then dallied while exploiting the oil-rich potential of Iraq with a war of invasion and occupation?
OK! I am digressing. But do you remember what all the Medicare dis-Advantage lobbyists were spending millions of dollars to say to you? Didn't it go something like this, "If Obama-care passes you'll lose your Medicare benefits". Or something along those lines, right? Oh yeah, and death panels, don't forget those damned old death panels.
Well, one of my sources has today provided me with a letter from SecureHorizons, the Medicare "Advantage" plan of healthcare insurance giant, Humana.
"Your existing plan is not changing". Well lordy me, Obama-care did not wipe out Medicare after all. And to my certain knowledge, there are no death panels being formed.
There is only one reason people (and giant insurance companies) lie. That is to hide the truth! The only reason this letter war necessary was to clean up from the lies Humana used to scare the living hell out of retirees and seniors---now they're having to back track. It would be hilarious were it not so ludicrously tragic!
