Why Aren't Republicans Angry over Insurance Industry Threats to Raise Rates?

What I found interesting about Republican complaints about the Baucus bill, were their comments about the Price-Waterhouse-Cooper report the insurance industry asked to justify huge price increases due to reform. They appeared unfazed by the fact that their comments were given well after Price back tracked on their conclusions, saying they were asked to not consider many of the Baucus bills cost saving elements.

The question not asked of the Republicans by the news media was: Doesn't it infuriate you knowing the insurance industry will raise rates anyway, no matter what reforms are put in place?
