This morning's USA Today has a front page article on the health insurance rescission. You can read the article here. I've discussed rescission at some length on other blog entries here and here. The irritation and hardship caused by insurer rescissions is just one more reason I think it is only a matter of time, perhaps a short time, before we have universal healthcare coverage across the country.

Brian: If you think an environment with insurers is a negative one, can you imagine what it would be like to fight city hall, in all its glory and sovereign immunity? And, speaking of fiduciary obligations, do you know how the federal government views its obligations toward Social Security and Medicare? It views them only as current liabilities, an obligation which can be amended, modified, or terminated at any time. The obligations the government has to Medicare and Social Security beneficiaries is no more of an obligation than any other expense it incurs, such as for roads and defense. And, its views are printed in black and white for all to see, if interested. Don Levit

I'm not excited about a single payer system for our healthcare system. The government handles some things pretty well. For all the griping I hear, I'm pleased with my mail and fire fighting services. But I think we need to have some choices and competition in the fields of both healthcare providing and paying.
