WellPoint attacks health legislation

Wall Street Journal, October 23, 2009
WellPoint Inc., the nation's largest health insurer by members, is striking out against proposed health-overhaul legislation with new data it presented to members of Congress Thursday. The insurer's conclusions, building on a study the insurance lobby put out last week, purport to show state by state how proposed changes to the nation's healthcare system would drive up premiums for some individuals and small businesses. Democrats on Capitol Hill criticized the findings as biased and self-serving.
