No, not figuratively. Literally.
Yesterday, a group of senior citizens from the Associated of Retired Americans tried to speak with a local Humana executive in Florida. Instead of meeting them and hearing their grievances - which included denying care, spending premium dollars on lobbying Congress against health reform and a public health insurance option, and sending misleading scare-mail to seniors - the executive slammed the door in their faces and locked himself in his office.
The executive at first told his secretary to tell these people that he was at lunch, which was a lie. Then he barricaded himself in his office. Finally, he faced the crowd.
All these people wanted was a couple minutes of this executive's time, to deliver a letter. He immediately said he'd give the letter to his "media people," even though the letter was for him and the CEO of Humana. And with news media cameras in his face, he once again slammed the door on Americans who just wanted a simple redress of their grievances.
This is how the insurance industry operates. They scare seniors. They rip you off. They use your money to lobby Congress against health care reform. And then they refuse to hear any criticism.
Spread this video far and wide, so people know that if the insurance industry wins, you lose.
