Did you hear about the testimony regarding rescinded health insurance? Some pretty appalling stuff here about private health insurance companies, and what they do without regulation. I heard some of the testimony from the horses' mouths, so to speak, and was absolutely disgusted. It was a 3 hour hearing, but there were a few choice snippets regarding people's coverage that was canceled by the insurance company through no fault of their own, triggered by people getting expensive illnesses. The insurance companies investigated, took faulty diagnoses from Drs and other minor things and used it to yank coverage, bankrupting and even killing people. The CEOs admitted it, and then said they would not stop.

I know it's long to watch, I am trying to find a concise, unbiased summary. This is the kind of stuff that happens when companies are allowed to operate outside the law, in effect, to make their own laws. In other words, if it is not specifically illegal, they do it.

Of course you would say there not common, wouldn't you carpy? cuz, heck you sale health insurance after all. Wouldn't be doing your job if you admitting that Those things are very common and happen all the time and to much.
and you think UHC will be better how?? this and other problems need regulation but not a complete overhaul. And such things are not common.
