National Day of Protest Against Health Insurance Corporations

How much do we hate health insurance corporations? More than credit card companies. More than the DMV. More than the phone - well, maybe not.

Yesterday, people around the country got the chance to vent their frustration, disgust and hatred, including demonstrators at the national headquarters of health insurance giant Humana in Louisville.

Indispensable Kentucky videographer Jim Pence of Hillbilly Report caught it on tape.

It's sad that John McCain and Senator Mitch McConnell are so out of touch with the needs of the people they are supposed to be representing. It seems that John McCain and Senator Mitch McConnell find it easer to represent the overpaid healthcare CEO's than the folks who were out on the streets protesting today.
