"Looking for Clues" or is it just "Clues" is also a great tune. I just remember the video of him dancing on building blocks. Back when videos were honest, cheap, -n- fun.

there's a piece of a bill aiming to fix the anti-trust exemption that the insurance companies have long enjoyed...

Insurance and Baseball are the two American industries that are exempt from anti-trust regulation.
Gee, I wonder why?

punky, do you have a link about this? I'm interested. I work for a risk-bearing physician organization that has to walk a fine line along the anti-trust issue in order to exist.

Not to get too political in the Random Thought thread...but the above conversation went directly to an article I was reading the yesterday...

Can the Democrats Avoid a Populist Health Care Rebellion?
By KEVIN ZEESE
October 20, 2009

FULL STORY HERE

"The leadership of the Democratic Party is on the verge of passing health insurance reform. The centerpiece of the “reform” is requiring Americans to buy overpriced insurance from private corporations. But, it is evident that many in the Democratic voting base see the insurance industry as the problem – not the solution – and are getting angry about a new law that will force people to buy from corporations they don’t trust...

...when I was arrested protesting the Senate Finance Committee hearing dominated by the insurance industry, one officer told me about his mother who had lost her job, was too young for Medicare and could not afford COBRA payments. The abuse of insurance affects all Americans and they will not be happy being forced to feed corporate gluttonous greed.

Why will Americans hate this “reform?”

First, this unnecessarily complex plan will not achieve any of the goals originally set. It will not cover all Americans, indeed tens of millions will be left without insurance ten years after it is enacted. And, it will not control costs as the insurance industry has said that their already too expensive premiums will increase by 111% in the next decade under “reform.”

Second, few Americans will benefit from the plan. In fact, the greatest beneficiary will be the insurance industry and other health care profiteers. Every ten million people forced to buy insurance by the government will give the industry $100 billion in new revenue – at current insurance rates. With 50 million uninsured that is potentially hundreds of billions in new revenue. In other words, the corporations that are the root of the problem will get rich off of the income of working Americans. This at a time when American salaries are stagnating, debts are high, costs are going up and there is constant fear of unemployment and bankruptcy. Further, those who have insurance but do not like their insurance plans will not be given any choice under the “reform.” They will be stuck with their current, overpriced insurance with rising premiums, co-pays and out of pocket expenses. This is a recipe for populist rebellion, but it does not stop there."

______________

Campaign for Liberty's running a promotion for 100, 000 phone calls to your legislator to stop the giveaway to the insurance companys...probably be a good idea to call, here's where one can find their reps' contact numbers.

(PS. I also think it was not too bright for Obama and Congress to cut $500 billion from our Medicare extention plans...seniors already are having a real hard time getting enough coverage, deep Medicare benefit cuts were the wrong thing to do...

PPS. There IS a bill, HR-676 from Democrats John Conyers and Dennis Kucinich that IS true single payer medicare for ALL Americans...The monied in Congress wish it would go away, but a lot of Americans know about it...call yer reps(: ).

Thanks punky, I appreciate it. This is big! Very interesting ramifications if it goes thru.
