Of all the classes of men, I dislike the most those who make their livings by talking - actors, clergymen, politicians, pedagogues, and so on. .... It is almost impossible to imagine a talker who sticks to the facts. Carried away by the sound of his own voice and the applause from the groundlings, he makes inevitably the jump from logic to mere rhetoric. - H.L. Mencken, "Sententiae"




A professional politician is a professionally dishonorable man. In order to get anywhere near high office he has to make so many compromises and submit to so many humiliations that he becomes indistinguishable from a streetwalker. - H.L. Mencken

Poconoeagle, Thats a diffrent way to look at things. It does really help make some sense of the crazy times we live. But there has to be a cheaper way to get the country to learn things. A 2x4 only costs a couple bucks. Whenever someone starts straying toward the left to far just give them a good one! :) ;)

Samhill, Champion of the left.......

"Yet, America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) seems to oppose the bill. It's president Karen Ignagni released a statement on H.R. 4626 saying it won't make health insurance affordable. Instead there is a need to focus on "real reform" and contain costs.

Ignagni, in her statement, says “in attempting to solve a problem that doesn’t exist, this legislation is the triumph of sound bites over substance. The Congressional Budget Office has said that passage of this legislation will do nothing to reduce health care costs. Moreover, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, anti-competitive ‘activities are not permitted under the McCarran-Ferguson Act and are not tolerated under state law.’ Real reform means containing costs to ensure that health care is affordable for working families and small businesses. It’s time to clear the political hurdles that stand in the way of real cost containment.”"

I never said it would reduce HCC, all I said was that it was passed & it would eliminate that legal monopoly. It is a step in the right direction IMO, it seems some here are highly defensive of the right for the I.Co.s to be protected. Just follow the votes & you`ll find I.Co. money on both sides. I just happen to believe that its favoritism to have laws that exclude certain people or Co.s while others are held accountable but from the reaction here a lot seem to think that discrimination is ok.

Not me. I'm just so jaded. I have been without health insurance for 33 years now. Let's see Barry Nostrobamus pull a rabbit out of a hat! Hey Nancy! Where's our Christmas present???? Slick politicians, big heartless corporate greed machines; and me with one vote.

I expect life to be like Bonanza, and it's more like The Sopranos...
