Progressives Demand Answers from Aetna in light of DOJ Suit and Exchange Exit
Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and three other progressive senators are leading an inquiry into why Aetna is pulling out of 11 of 15 of ObamaCare’s exchanges.
The company had cited losses, but many are pointing to high profits and saying that the choice was really a matter of the Department of Justice trying to block a merger with Humana.
Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) joined Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Ed Markey (Mass.), Sherrod Brown (Ohio) and Bill Nelson (Fla.) in penning a letter to Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini on Thursday.
