 I posted an article about this last week and was ignored.

Imagine what they could do if the ins ind took all the money they are spending to prevent reform and spent it on their members medical care, or reducing premiums or covering people with pre-existing conditions. We might not need reform so desperately if they stopped throwing so much money around to influence the people and Congress.

I'm on FB and play some of the games and would love some free perks but I'll pass. Even though I don't support the current legislation I would feel dirty taking money from these people and not in a good way ; )

I know, amazing what some people and corporations will do to keep things from changing.
