Insurance industry only out to make more profit

Ken Cobb had some observations about health care reform and the Constitution. We have some observations about Cobb and what he calls "our insurance industry."

First, the insurance industry isn't "ours." It belongs to a group of unscrupulous individuals who, in the last 30 years, have used their wealth and power to shape the rules to their great advantage. Their only concern is ever-increasing profits, which they reap by withholding health care instead of delivering it.

Second, Mr. Ken Cobb sells health insurance for a living, so he has a vested interest in convincing us that health care reform is a "socialist scheme." The Pioneer should have noted his occupation as an insurance salesman at the end of the article.
