This is for all of you on the right who think Hollywood celebrities are a bunch of liberals! Who'd have guessed Will Ferrell and several of his friends from hit TV shows such as Mad Men, ER and House would come to the defense of insurance companies and especially their executives? You've got to watch this: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/041b5acaf5/protect-insurance-companies-psa Reviews, please? Annie

Hey annie! When I first started watching this I was scared sh1tless that some of my favorite celebs had gone over to the wrong side! But, then as I watched and listened I just started to smile and ended up clapping at the end! That was just great! It was funny and sarcastic and oh so damn TRUE! I hope that they really run this on tv! It really was worth watching! I am so happy that these celebs made this infomercial! Let's hope that it does get real air time! How disgusting is it that the damn phucking Insurance Company CEO's only do care about the profit that make while we have to worry about where we will get the money if something terrible happens to one of us or one of our family members!

When I saw it for the first time on TV I had to rewind it and watch it again. Doesn't it start out like they're serious? Someone who's been getting a bad rap...insurance execs... It was very well done, in my opinion. Annie

No actually they don't. They can just be honest and straight forward with the amiercan people and treat them with respect instead of idiots. Two wrongs don't make a right. And the end does NOT justify the means.

When has the insurance industry been honest with the American people and NOT treated them like idiots? They already OWN doctors, they OWN hospitals and they OWN much of Congress. Annie

Will Ferrell is part of funny or die. Most famously, the videos of Pearl the Landlord. Just comedy, nothing else.

Now moveon.org is claiming it as theirs. Seriously. My friend put it on her facebook. I had to tell her where it came from. Did you watch the Landlord?

I was laughing until when they got to the lies about 80% of the American people supporting the "public option". When it went from funny satire to just more propaganda, it ceased to be funny. But I did watch the first part again, it was hilarious! :~D

They're still missing the point.. Let insurance compete over state lines, increasing their competition 50 fold.. that's what will bring down prices, not yet another skimmer off the top.. which is all government involvement will end up to be. Ask vets how they like their health care.

Actually, the video was meant to be satire but I must respectfully disagree about insurance companies compete across state lines. That would cause prices to increase drastically for some groups of people. This is a discussion in itself but I don't think it's the answer at all. Annie

"That would cause prices to increase drastically for some groups of people." How?

Below is both the long and short of why selling insurance across state lines is not the answer and will lead to increased premiums, reduced benefits and eventually no coverage at all for many Americans. http://www.newamerica.net/files/In%20Brief%20ASL%20Explained.pdf http://www.newamerica.net/files/Policy%20Paper%20Across%20State%20Lines%20Explained.pdf Annie
