    No, no, single payer for everyone, tax the haves so the havenots can get free stuff. That's what it's all about. Why do you think there's been zero attempt to fix the economy. The more poor folks, the larger the welfare class, the more votes can be bought. All the big dictators in history did the same thing.

    Anti-monopoly law. For example Major League Baseball has anti-trust exemption.

    What this is really all about is the study that was recently released by the insurance industry demonstrating that this reform will in fact increase the cost of premiums, the corporatist jack booted fascist thugs now running the country couldn't have any of that pesky dissent, so now they are being punished.

    Here,s a link that might help.

    DemConWatch:: Insurance Companies Exempt from Government Price Fixing Oversight

    and this Wiki.

    McCarran-Ferguson Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
