Connecticut Citizens Action Group:  “We’ve been bringing you news of health insurance greed — focusing on four of the companies that helped derail the public option, and revealing that in 2022 alone, they diverted $400 billion away from your care — to make their rich shareholders and executives even richer, with stock buybacks, CEO compensation and gross profits.  And now they want to raise your premiums – again.”
