U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) again called for passage of companion bills they’ve introduced to mandate federal oversight of health plan premiums, saying it’s clear now that insurance companies are more concerned about profits than patients. “I’ve come to the conclusion that the driving force in this sector of our economy is profits for shareholders; it isn’t good coverage for beneficiaries and that’s a problem,” Feinstein said.
