Sick of big insurance


WATERLOO (KWWL) - Protesters across the country, including Iowa, took part in Big Insurance: Sick Of It Day.

Protesters lined up in Waterlooo demanding that health insurance companies support reform.

Their demands include letting the patient pick their doctor, not denying coverage or raising rates for pre-existing conditions, and not lobby against health care reform.

They say this national day of action was needed because of the negative press about the health bill.

"If they don't know about it, that they will discover more about it because they see that people are standing here and really expresing their concern for the health system being the mess that it is today," said Dr. Michael Blackwell, protester.

Protesters are members of the Iowa Federation of Labor, Health Care for Americal Now, and Alliance for Retired Americans.
