Whose fault is it anyway?
This is an interesting blog post in BizTimes.com, a Wisconsin-based newspaper. The article discusses the common perception that insurance companies are to blame for the current health care crisis. The author lists several reasons why insurance companies are not to blame. First-health insurers were already in favor of reform to require insurance companies to enroll anyone-regardless of preexisting conditions. Second-health insurance companies were also in favor of place limits of what they can charge for elderly premiums. Third-insurance providers are businesses, trying to maximize their earnings. To victimize them is childish and shows a lack of understanding of financial institutions. While it's true that a reform was needed (although certainly not a complete overhaul), demonizing a for-profit company is ludicrous.
