The House is voting next week to take away your rights under the just-upheld health care law, including the more than $1 billion insurers owe us for wasting our money. We're sending a clear message to Congress that you do want your rights - and refunds.

The GOP always says we should expect nothing from the Government. But they sure have a double-standard when it comes to looking out for corporate interests and the 1%. They're looked out for quite well...at our expense.

Thanks!

The loss ratio is one of the best provisions of the entire reform package because it helps so much with bringing down the cost of the premiums, and at the same time, it's a big "f*** you" to the insurance industry because there's no way they'll be able to pay such exorbitant salaries to their executives anymore.

Keep in mind that the average American's annual salary is about $34,000, but of the top 6 health insurance companies, their CEOs make more than $34,000 A DAY, and the 6th place company's CEO makes a mere $30,000 a day.

When they kept increasing their premiums, did customers get more for their money? No. They usually got less service and coverage, but the executives got more off the top, and the loss ratio provision leaves them with far less money to use for these salaries.

Is it any wonder they're trying to get their Republican buddies in Congress to get rid of this?
