Whistleblower Tells of America's Hidden Nightmare for Its Sick Poor

Whistleblower Tells of America's Hidden Nightmare for Its Sick Poor

Paul Harris

Wendell Potter can
remember exactly when he took the first steps on his journey to
becoming a whistleblower and turning against one of the most powerful
industries in America.

It was July 2007 and Potter, a senior
executive at giant US healthcare firm Cigna, was visiting relatives in
the poverty-ridden mountain districts of northeast Tennessee. He saw an
advert in a local paper for a touring free medical clinic at a
fairground just across the state border in Wise County, Virginia.
