    No I am not. My company downsized. We still do the same work, yet with fewer of us we just work harder.

    It has nothing to do with the market. When the government forces a business to cut it's operating capital by 20%, the business has no choice but to raise price, thereby generating more revenue, or go out of business.

    I am saying that the author says that the system should not be thrown out, just fixed. He says we should learn from Europe's mistakes. Kinda how we did when we formed this nation.

    But the government is forcing more people to pay the premiums. SO it is market.

    I am saying no one has ever really decreased the areas under the purview of the government. The closet thing was Bush's deregulation of markets which only ended up hurting the economy.

    It costs, "X", to process each person. The more people that the insurance companies have to process, the more it's going to cost them to do it.

    So, no, it's not the market.

    I am not against profits nor saying it increases profits. I am saying that they force the cost higher by having to accumulate so much income to keep theirselves afloat and their CEO's in million dollar bonuses. Thus they fight to pay doctors less, while charging us more.
