UnitedHealth Group Pitches Itself As Pro-Reform Insurance Company, While Directing Employees To Tea Parties

As an addendum to this post, take a look at UnitedHealth Group’s health care reform website. It sends a purely positive message, complete with a Polaroid image of a happy, healthy family urging people to “tell congress to unite for health reform”

The letter the company sent to employees, calling on them to get involved in the health care debate is likewise headlined with the message “United for Health Reform.”

And yet, as I reported, the company doesn’t just advise employees to attend town hall forums. It arms them with talking points for those forums, and even directs them to anti-health care reform tea parties.
