Good News: UnitedHealth Raises Profit Targets on Higher Sales

Some things never change. UnitedHealth’s “results toppped analyst expectations as net income rises to $3.54 billion in quarter“. Are you feeling De Ja Vu? Nope. You will see this headline over and over and over.

This is what I said a year and a half ago and I will say it again:

Without competition these bastards will do the same thing this upcoming year.  Just watch.  They create a lie to justify an increase and then they rake in the dough.  It’s not hard. Imagine a business where you can raise your prices as much as you want because you know the customer HAS to buy it?

This has to stop!  Look into other options.  Look for cheaper plans across states lines if you are allowed.  Consider the health ministries.  This cornerstone of the Medical Axis of Evil needs to be destroyed.
