Your Caring Corporation: Aetna

Health insurance giant Aetna has announced that it's raising premiums in 2010, resulting in an estimated 650,000 people forced off its client rolls. The reason? Lower than anticipated profits. Corporate jets becoming more expensive, is that it?

What better justification for a strong public option to pressure these robbers to hold the line on price increases (and denial of coverage, for that matter)?

The lack of affordable health care for a huge chunk of the population in the USA is a disgrace.

The federal government has to intervene.
