Take a Look at How Much CEOs of Insurance Companies Make

See salaries of the CEOs of major Health Insurance companies in the United States and ask yourself if this works for you.

71014_MoneyHappiness_vl-vertical.jpgI’m sure many of you are feeling sick of hearing about health care reform from whatever media sources you are tuned into. It’s easy just to get disgusted and turn off to it. But regardless of your political affiliations, most people agree that the system is not working as it’s currently “structured” and something needs to be done to make it better. The U.S. can’t survive in the 21st Century economy if costs continue to skyrocket as they have been and the uninsured continue to burden our economy.

We (as individuals) can take a selfish approach and say “as long as I’m covered, that’s all I care about”. But we’re kidding ourselves if we don’t think we’re affected in some way by costs that are out of control and the uninsured.

Other countries (like Switzerland) were fed up with their health care systems and decided to do something about it. If the public makes their will known, politicians whose campaigns are funded by insurance lobbies will have no choice but to take notice.
