Statement by U.S. PIRG Health Care Advocate on Secretary Sebelius’ Remarks at AHIP

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–March 10, 2010.

“U.S. PIRG applauds Secretary Sebelius for calling out the insurance industry for spending millions of Americans’ premium dollars on DC lobbyists and anti-reform campaign ads. The health reform package now headed for a final vote in Congress would help end these shenanigans…permanently.

“Health reform would not only end abusive insurance practices and hold down costs for families and small businesses. It would finally hold the insurance industry accountable for what they do with your money, with new authority to stop excessive rate increases and a requirement that 85% of your health care costs go to care, not to CEO salaries or lobbying campaigns.’’
