    Leave it to Oliphant for pure demagogic propaganda.

    The insurance companies have one of the lowest profit margins of any American industry. At least the majority of voters realize (as shown in recent polls) that the quality of their health care is likely to decline if health “reform” passes.

    When the health insurance companies take their 30% off the top for their ceos and stock holders, and to pay off the politicians, before providing care? Of course a NON-PROFIT will be cheaper and better. All people should have food, shelter and health care - get your profits over and above that. I’m sure the health plan you want will be for MEN ONLY. Most private health insurance companies provide for VIAGRA but not for birth control. Won’t insure underweight or overweight babies and throw off many who get cancer OR OTHER ILLNESSES. I FOR ONE DO NOT WANT THE CURRENT HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES BETWEEN ME AND MY DOCTOR.

    If their profit margins are so low, why are they spending millions every day on lobbying?

    The toon sorta’ insults the mafia. While I do have one insurance carrier who has served me well for many years (auto insurance)- recent experience has emphasized just how BAD most insurance companies are, especially unregulated health insurance companies who yes, take their CEOs cut OFF THE TOP!

    It’s a lot like the credit card note I got that the bank’s APR is going up to 30%– wasn’t that once called usury? It just happened to be one of our most impoverished, and bailed out, banks to boot.

    If it weren’t for the sign on the door, I would have thought it was an Illinois legislature in session. Doin’ it the Chicago way!

    Minefield- Chicago also gave us Friedman’s economics, and bankruptcy, moral and fiscal.

    @ Michaelwme: I assume you’re joking when you talk about “good, honest, American businesses.” That simply does not apply to health insurance companies. And are you saying that no claims made against these companies are valid?
