9-9-9 and Insurance Rate Increases

Herman Cain has been making a huge splash with his 9-9-9 tax plan.  But what is his plan really?  And what effect would it have on you if it were to be enacted?  Today on The Brian Lehrer Show they discussed just that.

Also on the show they discussed the push by several insurers in the New York to raise their rates, some as high as 53%.  This thankfully would have to be approved by the state.  Unfortunately, there is the possibility that some of our representatives would be more than happy to let this happen.  Brian interviewed Elisabeth Benjamin, vice president of health initiatives at Community Services Society and co-founder of Health Care for All New York Campaign, about her push to stop these devestating increases.
