They're double-crossing Obama
Breaking news on health care: The Washington Post is now reporting that insurance giant Blue Cross Blue Shield "is putting the finishing touches on a public message campaign aimed at killing a key plank in Obama's reform platform."
The Huffington Post sums it up as "Insurers Planning on Double-Crossing Obama."
We knew the insurance companies would eventually turn on the president, but this is much sooner than expected.
Remember, there's a right time and place for core values to be sold out... but not so soon!
One is reminded of the mobsters who bump into a restaurateur. One mobster says, "Luigi, I'm so sorry to hear about your restaurant burning down. What a shame!" The other whispers to him: "That's not 'til tomorrow!"
