Today, President Obama tore into private health insurers for recent rate hikes, taking a more aggressive rhetorical turn as he pushes for final congressional passage of his top domestic priority.

Insurance companies, the president argued, have made a calculation. He cited a recent Goldman Sachs conference call in which an insurance broker told investors that insurers are willing to lose some customers through premium hikes because of an overall lack of competition in the industry.

The administration is ramping up its health care push in the coming weeks. The White House has called for legislation to be on the president's desk at the end of March before the congressional Easter vacation.

Tonight, we talk to a former health insurance executive, Wendell Potter and the current executive vice President of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), Mike Tuffin, for their perspectives on health care reform.
