Re "Kaiser's rising premiums spark employer backlash," July 25 Why is HMO Kaiser Permanente raising its premiums through the roof? In his book "Deadly Spin," former insurance company executive Wendell Potter wrote that the health insurance industry is dominated by a few large companies that have no reason to keep rate increases reasonable. I say that if insurance companies such as Kaiser Permanente continue to raise rates with impunity, don't be surprised if voters demand the public insurance option that President Obama originally proposed as part of his healthcare reform plan.
