Rescission--The Facts

Worth remembering:

...Congressional staffers' analysis of 116,000 pages of documents from three large health insurers [.....] identified a total of about 20,000 rescissions from millions of policies issued by the insurers over a five-year period. Company representatives testified that less than one half of one percent of policies were rescinded (less than 0.1% for one of the companies).

If existing laws and litigation governing rescission are inadequate, there clearly are a variety of ways that the states or federal government could target abuses without adopting the president's agenda for federal control of health insurance, or the creation of a government health insurer

But repairing or improving the extant system is NOT the agenda. A complete takeover IS the agenda.
