<<Life can be cruel and unfair and often is. And when that happens it is not the time to trust your life to a for-profit insurance company. They do not have your best interest at heart.>>

Yeah, right --- I read the book. Washington State recently adopted laws that allow people to collect punitive damages should an insurance company willfully and arbitrarily refuse to pay benefits o0wed under an insurance policy.

However, when the Washington State Legislature found it inconvenient to continue to subsidize it's Basic Health Care insurance plan, it arbitrarily terminated 30,000 people from coverage.

When do you suppose they will make a movie about THAT?
