Video: Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) Calls Health Care Companies "Monopolies Dictating Prices"

"To work through all of this effort and to just give 40 million new customers to the health care companies that are basically monopolies dictating prices without effecting fairness in that competitive marketplace means those that have health care today aren't gonna have it tomorrow."


Who: Congressman Joe Sestak (D-PA)

What: Exclusive interview regarding health care.

When: Thursday, October 29, 2009

Sestak Soundbite #1: Public Option Is Not A Government Organization.

"We shouldn't have called it also the public option. I think the word was used yesterday, it was a consumer option. Call it something, but this is not about a government organization. This is about a company that is gonna live or die based upon those who elect to join it and their co-pays and deductibles."



Sestak Soundbite #2: Pennsylvania Health Care Concerns.

"It's just gonna give competition again to where we don't have it. For example in my state, Pennsylvania, where two health care companies have 70% of private health care plans. Until we effect fair competition, you're health care premiums are gonna go up like they have in Pennsylvania the past eight years, another hundred percent."


Length of Full Interview: 2:23
