Public option gets a boost from ex-UnitedHealth Group exec

Minneapolis Star Tribune, October 29, 2009

Lois Quam, an ex-UnitedHealth executive, says insurers are "simply wrong" to fight a federal government role as part of healthcare reform. In a speech at the University of Minnesota's Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, Quam threw her support behind a proposed government-run health insurance plan that would compete with private insurers. She also took on the insurance industry head-on, noting that insurers had opposed the creation of Medicare in the 1960s and opposed healthcare reform during the early years of the Clinton administration, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
