Prospect of single-payer system makes them want to 'Shout'

Summer is typically time off for the Ohio Association of Health Underwriters, but the movement toward health care reform has the group and its members working overtime.

The Ohio association is following the advice of the National Association of Health Underwriters in joining what they’re calling Operation Shout. The initiative encourages members to contact lawmakers via e-mail, letters and phone to urge them to oppose any efforts to form a national, single-payer system for health care, said Ken Statz, legislative chairman for the Ohio Association of Health Underwriters.

It is a good sign, it means they are taking us seriously. All these people will keep their jobs, they will simply underwrite different kinds of insurance.

yep. that's how it works in civilized countries.
