Cigna makes profits from the suffering of Americans.  We should be waging war on them, not taking donations.

They're an insurance company. Of course they're going to hedge.

Both sides are bad. Donate to both sides.

When there's only 2 sides to choose from, it makes it really easy to bribe everyone.

"HA! You idiots took us seriously! Long live Hair Fuhrer!"

Never trust an insurance company. Their profits always come first.

Good luck boycotting a product you have no choice in buying.

Republicans are keeping our insanely evil for-profit health care industry in place. No goddam way is CIGNA, or any other insurance company, going to forget that.

Cigna is a wretched company and i will gladly die of a preventable illness before i ever contribute one more penny to their bottom line.

Are you joking?  Both sides aren't bad, Democrats passed the ACA and cost them billions in profit.  They are therefore far worse than bad, they committed the ultimate sin of cutting into sacred the bottom line.

No joke. I switched jobs after my last company switched to them. New company pays a lot more, but they now have Cigna too. FML

I remember a heart warming news story about Cygna from years ago.  A desolate man went to Cygna headquarters after Cygna had slow walked a request, over moths or a year, for the man's wife's meds or procedure to the point she died and then they approved.  He had no luck getting to see anyone at the palatial headquarters.  No one.

At one point the head of HR stood on the balcony and shot the finger at the man.  Such as egregious action asks for a little research.  The head of HR was pulling down about $2M a year in salary, with another $2M in benefits/stock/perks.   He was making two grand an hour basically, so money was tight.

At that point, I figured that Cygna was too precious a company for the likes of me or my business.  Every time a list of companies shows up for medical choice -- Cygna is my first choice no consideration.

God, I spent almost 20 years working for WellPoint/Anthem and Cigna. Some days my job was just heartbreaking to do to people. But they paid me a lot and I had great benefits and retirement. At the time it was an "Eff you, I got mine" attitude.
It was mid 90s through 2014. I was in my 20s and 30s and making bank.

Stories like this make me wonder why we don't have more bombings. I don't want to call it terrorism, since it's a-political, but how many people must be in the same basket and not really have anything to lose by detonating Cigna's corporate headquarters?

Not that this is much of a defense.  But they are talking about two different things.  And they are clarifying where the line is drawn.

So this isn't exactly screeching of hypocrisy the way TFH makes it seem.

I mean, it was "peaceful" in the sense that those elected officials weren't literally shooting voters in the street, but that is a very, very broad and useless definition of "peaceful" that only an asshole would use.

Oh, the trials and tribulations you must have gone through.

I first heard of Cigna because their communications director Wendell Potter had led the industry charge to discredit Michael Moore's documentary Sicko! Most of the industry talking points used against that, and subsequently Obamacare (the real one that didn't make it out of the Senate, not the ACA that was branded with that name which was a sop to the insurance companies) and other attempts for universal healthcare, were personally crafted by Mr. Potter.

I know some of you don't believe that right-wingers can truly repent, especially when their lucrative income depends on the lies (see the thread in PolTab today about the fired OAN "reporter" and the usual discussions about The Lincoln Project). Wendell proved otherwise. It's rare, but sometimes they really do repent:

Are we saying that voting to sustain an objection to specific state results is the same as voting against the entire certification? And that it's somehow not peaceful? Or is there some violence in that process I'm not aware of?

Trying to keep up with the implicit conflation you folks grow here.

Look, Congress voting to overturn the election is all part of our Peaceful transfer of Power, What is DANGEROUS would be if after the Congress had rightfully thrown out the illegal election that people would object to Trump being installed as permanent Emperor and rebel against this perfectly SMOOTH and PEACEFUL process. That would REQUIRE our Nation to become a Dictatorship.

/so don't do that.

Still not clear on which part this is.  The part where idiots did a pointless thing that could have changed nothing and forced people to talk for two hours?
