"Aetna's exodus illustrates what a crazy idea it was to think that you could get to universal coverage through the private health industry."

– Dr. Steffie Woolhandler, co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program and a professor at the City University of New York's School of Public Health at Hunter College, on why she believes a single-payer system like Medicare For All is more suited for the public interest and would put the U.S. system on par with other developed nations

Aetna, based in Hartford, Connecticut and the nation’s third largest insurance company, announced last week that next year it will be pulling out of 11 of 15 states where it offers policies in the Affordable Care Act’s health exchanges. The company says that it has lost $430 million in profits since it began offering individual policies on the ACA exchanges in January 2014. Aetna complained that those purchasing insurance policies are sicker and costlier than expected.  Story continues

But rarely do journalists or politicians address the critical and related issue of racial wealth inequality.  Story continues

According to the Red Cross, the flood devastating Louisiana is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy in 2012, according to the Red Cross. The flood triggered by 31 inches of rain that fell in 15 hours, has killed 13 people and damaged an estimated 40,000 homes. An earlier flood that inundated West Virginia after ten inches of rain fell on June 23, killed 26 people, damaged hundreds of homes and washed out bridges, further isolating rural communities.  Story continues
