Will Ferrell and friends at Funny or Die have brought attention to the forgotten victims of the current health care debate: health insurance executives. Ferrell reminds us, “Insurance companies are detailed oriented enough to deny claims for things like typos. If you spell something wrong, do you really deserve surgery? I don’t think so.”
Sometimes, when discussions get heated and so much hinges on a decision, it’s easy to lose track of who’s really important and who has the most to lose. Luckily Will Ferrell and some other caring celebrities have taken up the cause of those who have no other voice.
