by John Dankosky – As state insurance regulators face tough questions about rate increase proposals by Anthem, and newly-empowered Republicans in Washington saddle up to dismember the new federal health care laws, Wendell Potter’s got a new book out. Timing, anyone?
Potter is the former CIGNA public relations guru, who quit his high-paying job to become one of the insurance industry’s biggest critics. His new book is called, “Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out On How Corporate PR Is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans.” It’s a mouthful, but he’s got a lot to say – about corporate profits, denials of coverage, and a personal journey that led him to realize that real health care reform is what America needs.
