The Turn of the Screwed
' Don'get sick in America' runs the warning. Even if you have health insurance you can be bankrupted by a major illness.
It's all part of America's health crisis-the current preoccupation of a remarkable man, HERBERT s. DENENBERG, Insurance Commissioner for the State of Pennsylvania. f The consumer has been screwed long enough,' says Denenberg, ' now it's the Turn of the Screwed.'
It's a creed that has made Denenberg into a national figure as he has successfully attacked - and antagonised - lawyers, polluters, car makers. Now he's taking on what he calls the biggest of the ' consumer frauds ! - the mighty forces of American medicine.
