    With this bill. They will need the public option. Arbitrary price controls and restrictions on coverage will sink private coverage. How can premiums be based on anything other than the cost of the care provided?

    They are not based on that now. The medical loss ratio has spiralled ever downward; as payouts for medical costs dropped as percentage of premium dollar paid - premiums paid increased. The increases had no relation to cost increases.

    I checked the bill out a little and I see 1099's in my employees's futures.

    BS. Private insurance premiums are based on the care provided. Yes there is a profit. Yes there are administrative costs incurred. Still no insurance firm would provide health coverage for less than the cost of care. It is the primary factor in setting premiums.

    This bill mentions nothing about premiums as a relation to the cost of care provided by the insurance company. It enforces arbitrary premium limits based on federal standards.

    Why would they let just anyone into the ceremony? If they did, some people would be drowning out the place with yelling and disruptions, as would be the case with any bill. No politician would willingly let detractors into the place. :P

    Hey, it works for social security... Just pass those costs on to others in higher healthcare prices! Which is one reason I like the idea of single payer. Although, I thought I read the healthcare bill they're pushing through now has rates negotiated with the health insurance companies?

    Care to see what Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans thinks?

    House of Representatives Releases Affordable Health Care for America Act

    http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/3...78/a63de201fa/

    In part it she says;
    "The promise of health care reform has been that if you like your current coverage, you can keep it. We are concerned that this proposal will break this promise by increasing health care costs for families and employers across the country and significantly disrupting the quality coverage on which millions of Americans rely today.

    "The lack of system-wide cost containment is a missed opportunity. Without a greater focus on health care costs, families and employers will not be able to afford coverage and health care costs will rise at a rate much faster than the overall economy is able to sustain.
    Gee seems like she could at any minute get a warning shot from Obama, Pilosi and Reid because we know the truth is becoming a rare and in some cases banded in this once bastion of free speech.
