    Do you mean a complete violation of the limits to the Congress’s power? Can anyone show me where they have the right to demand this kind of information from any company?

    .......but I could be wrong.
    Unless there's a law being violated or a contract being breached....so what?

    Let's go one step further.

    Can anyone show me where health care is any business of the Federal government? Where it is even Constitutional?

    Kill this bill!

    Kill it NOW!

    When you adopt an insulting tone, and throw out insults, you lose any chance of being taken seriously.

    You can NOT hear the tone of my words as I type them.

    I think companies should be able to pay officers whatever they want to.

    But they shouldn't be able to call 8 figure salaries a "legitimate business expense" on their corporate tax return.

    Nobody could get rich selling insurance or computer software without all the infrastructure our ancestors toiled to build for them.

    You mean like Bwarney Fwank?

    Why do you continue to support a Nazi policy, as Obama has?” the young lady asked during the two-hour town hall meeting on health care in Dartmouth, Mass.

    Replied Frank, who is of Jewish extraction: “I am going to refer my ethnic heritage, and answer your question with a question. On what planet do you spend most of your time?”

    He added: “It’s a tribute to the First Amendment that this kind of vile, contemptible nonsense is so freely propagated. Trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table.” See it here:

    Uh...gee, I dunno. Maybe because the topic of the thread happens to be health insurers and not lawyers and medical profession? Just a guess...

    Tort reform and oversight of doctors, nurses and hospitals should be the first places to start to reform the health care industry. Not the insurance companies and especially turning over everything to the federal government.
    I do believe, if I'm not mistaken, that I stated clearly, in plain English, that oversight of health insurers should be "PART" of the healthcare overhaul. Now I don't know what that means to you, but to most of us who speak English as a first language, that means "this, in addition to".
