Five months ago, I talked with Wendell Potter, the former insurance company public relations executive who turned against the industry and became a health care reform advocate at the Center For Media & Democracy. Today on KIRO/Seattle, I talked with him again to get his reaction to the bill the Senate passed last week.
We discussed the chances of reviving the public option, how the coverage mandate will mean a boon to insurance companies’ bottom lines, whether opponents’ claim that tort reform is the answer has any truth to it, the huge amounts of money the health business has poured into lobbying against reform, and much more.
