Who says this kind of stuff?
Health insurance rate increase requests by state:
Recent economic data show that profits for the ten largest insurance companies increased 250 percent between 2000 and 2009, ten times faster than inflation.[12,13] Last year, as working families struggled with rising health care costs and a recession, the five largest health insurance companies – WellPoint, UnitedHealth Group, Cigna, Aetna, and Humana – took in combined profits of $12.2 billion, up 56 percent over 2008. These health insurance companies’ profits grew even as nominal GDP decreased by 1 percent over this same time period. WellPoint accumulated more than $2.7 billion in profits in the most recent quarter alone.
And recent data show that the CEOs of America’s five largest insurers were each compensated up to $24 million in 2008.
Pretty screwed up!!
