House Dems seek info from health insurers - Yahoo! News

Democrats on a House committee are seeking detailed financial records from dozens of large insurance companies, officials disclosed Tuesday, part of an investigation into "executive compensation and other business practices" in an industry opposed to President Barack Obama's plan to overhaul health care.

The request included records relating to compensation of highly paid employees, documents relating to companies' premium income and claims payments, and information on expenses stemming from any event held outside company facilities in the past 2 1/2 years.

The witch hunt begins. The majority party will now seek to demonize the insurance industry for daring to make money. Their "Plan B" on health care will be to say that insurance companies must have their price structures dictated to them, since they cannot be trusted to be "fair" to people.

Is Congress now planning to set wages and compensation for whole industries, and not just GovernmentMotors?
