Why is it so bad to make a profit for goodness sake?!!! The insurance companies make a profit from your car insurance, your health insurance, your home owners insurance, your life insurance, and any other insurance you choose to have or are required by the state to have (car insurance). The HAVE to make a profit or they would not be able to stay in business. You don't mind that profit when you invest in them and they send you a dividend check. Please stop blaming the insurance companies. It is a red herring thrown out by the liberals to get you fired up so you will march mindlessly towards a more socialistic society. Poor stupid sheep.

If MSNBC says it, it must be true. Even they think the Democrats in power "misrepresented" the facts. LOL

Having worked for a large health ins company and seen the parting gifts they give to execs I find that hard to believe but suppose it's possible. The ones who really rake it in are Big Pharma, second only to Big Oil.
I'm not a fan of the current legislation but know that we need reform, soon.
