The New Health Care System
Some politicians are cheering the result. At last the insurance industry will be prevented from denying health insurance to anyone for any reason.
Do you believe this? If so, I have some shares in a bridge between two populous islands in New York State that I'm willing to sell to you for a very low price.
The insurance companies are not objecting about requirements to insure everyone, regardless of present or past illnesses. I figure that their lawyers already know how to get around these requirements as soon as they appear to be hurting the business. We Americans abhor a government requiring a private company to operate at a loss. The Supreme Court will declare the laws requiring the insurance companies to operate at a loss to be unconstitutional. After that happens, we will be right back where we were before the Administration and Congress decided to reform the health care system.
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
