quote [ California's insurance commissioner has launched an investigation into Aetna after learning a former medical director for the insurer admitted under oath he never looked at patients' records when deciding whether to approve or deny care.
California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones expressed outrage after CNN showed him a transcript of the testimony and said his office is looking into how widespread the practice is within Aetna. ]
When things start to get violent against people like this I think it will be some poor soul rationalizing their behavior as a form self-defense. For themselves or others. And I would have a hard time disagreeing with them, I think. Whether it's being denied healthcare, the destruction of our environment, or watching someone with the same skin color as you being gunned down in the street by police, the numbers start adding up in your head. Some would say it's submissiveness, but I think it's a testament to our humanity how much we would like to search for that peaceful resolution before resorting to a violent one.
