“Dog bites man” news: Insurance industry opposes reform

Big surprise, huh?:

Healthcare reform being considered by Congress could cost the typical family $4,000 per year in higher premiums, a new report sponsored by the insurance industry says.

The report marks one of the boldest efforts yet by the insurance industry to oppose reform. Democrats and the White House had made courting the industry one of the central compoments of their campaign.

Yeah, no one could have guessed that kissing the ass of the insurance industry leaders wouldn’t pay off.
