Wendell Potter was an executive with the insurance company Cigna for almost 20 years. He is now speaking out against the industry. Last month, Potter testified in front of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation about what he sees as an industry corrupted by Wall Street greed and investor expectations. Potter had said, “You don’t think about people. You think about the numbers, and whether or not you’re going to meet Wall Street’s expectations.” We’ll also hear from our resident entertainment critic, David Kipen.
