Knock, Knock? Who’s there? Health Insurance

us_president_barack_obama_spending_money_for_debt_policy_speech_strategy_comic_political_cartoon_economist_funny_best_top_free_greatest1Ahhh back to the heath care battle. The dems are now scrambling behind closed doors as the Health Insurance companies with their huge pocket books are not playing nice anymore.

So once the Senate Finance Committee votes Tuesday on its health care overhaul plan, the focus will shift to the closed doors of Harry Reid’s office.

And then this is where must merge the conservative-leaning Finance Committee legislation with a more liberally drawn bill approved by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.

So whats the difference? The Finance Committee bill and the health committee legislation involves a government-run insurance company — the public option.

The health committee bill provides for a robust public option designed to compete head-on with insurance companies and force them to rein in costs.


So what are the health insurance companies doing?

They are sending a strong message that health care legislation will drive up premiums for people who already have coverage comes as a warning shot at a crucial point in the debate, and threatens President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.

So whats the fear for the dems you say/ well back in the 90’s it was the Insurance industry that destroyed President Bill Clinton’s health care plan by fanning fears that people with coverage would wind up paying more.

  1. Liars cheat and thieves…this bill sucks ass and now despite everybody saying NO this fucking assholes are going to ram this THING down our throats like a swollen cock and they are going to do it in secret.

    • Why of course they are, has this “bi-patisian” administration shown you otherwise…politics behind closed doors but safety of the citizens, the whole world can see that

  2. Of course, Olympia Snow is for the Baucus bill. It will be a windfall for the insurance industry. Everybody is required to buy health care coverage and the government, i.e. tax-payers, will subsidize those who can’t afford it. Absolutely ZERO cost controls on an industry which has just admitted that rates are going up even more. The Senate Finance Committee bill is a catastrophe for Americans.

  3. The liberals in this administration DO NOT care what the general public wants, and they are very aware of how upset and angry many people are about this.

    Their agenda is to pass the healthcare legislation that THEY want, and to hell with everybody else. This is absolutely the worst presidential administration that the US has ever had. Sickening.

    • Shhhh, dont tell the nobel administration you said that, they might accuse you of developing the internet 🙂

  4. Here’s my solution:

    Everyone, not yet in retirement age and able to take advantage of medicare, etc. , should drop their coverage. The insurance carriers, with the massive drop in enrollments will be forced to increase premiums on remaining clients by 300%+ – causing them to no longer be able to afford it. People, without insurance and unable to afford hospital/doctor bills stop seeking medical attention unless it is an emergency (in which case, if they are financially unable to pay … medicare kicks in for them as well). Eventually, Doctor’s offices and hospitals will not be doing financially well and have to lay off Doctor’s. Doctor’s, unable to afford malpractice insurance that the hospitals required them to have to work there, open something called private practice and house visitations (like we heard once existed in America) so that they are not required to have malpractice insurance and can, therefore, have greater profits and less supervision advising what level of care they are permitted to provide. Patients get better treatment from the happier, private practice, doctors and at a substantially lower cost. Insurance companies vanish from the economy like the money in Bernie Madoff’s vault. People can once again afford homes and cars and to live a happy life without fear of the next insurance premium hike. Congress, without a medical lobby to finance campaigns, suddenly becomes the global model of a corruption free government.

    Ugh, funny dream – better hit the snooze alarm; I feel reality setting in again.
